Food Pantry Supplies
Does this photo look a little familiar to you? Especially on “grocery day” when you come home with bags of groceries to re-stock your refrigerator and pantry for the week? For most of us, we can say with honesty that we always have food in our house…even if it isn’t always what “sounds good” to eat. And, not only do we have ample choices in the pantry, we also have plenty of meals out—whether meeting a friend for lunch, or bringing home dinner for the family…food is not something we are doing without.
But, let’s take a closer look at the families we serve in Tijuana. I’ve been in their homes and believe me, there are no “pantries” to be found—and often no “refrigerator” either. Families have a measly amount of staples such as beans, tortillas, and maybe some rice-- things that go a long way and are affordable on meager wages. That is why it is such a blessing when we can offer fruits and vegetables at our activity day and “extras” that will help them stretch out a few extra meals for their families.
Please consider helping us re-stock our pantry at Spectrum Ministries with “extras” we distribute each week in our neighborhoods. We are running pretty much out of everything, so anything is a huge help! Items needed are: pasta, pasta sauce, canned foods (vegetables, fruit, beans), ramen noodles, powdered milk, peanut butter, baby food, and toilet paper.
Be assured that you, your church or Sunday school class, workplace friends, book club, or exercise class, will be helping in a big way by blessing others! *Just drop off your donations on the tables at the Spectrum shed on Galveston Street.
