Food Pantry seeks working freezer

Cane River Food Pantry Freezer 1

The Cane River Food Pantry has need of a freezer.  If anyone has a freezer running on the back porch or one that is in good working order, would you consider donating it?

The Pantry would prefer a chest type, but any one that is running would help.  It has to keep food frozen, which is why the Pantry lost some food in March.  If anyone wants to help the interdenominational food pantry with a tax deductible donation, call Stephanie at 357-8297.  She will arrange a pick up and get you a donation credit.

The Pantry also accepts food and cash donations.  Monetary donations may be sent to Cane River Food Pantry, P.O. Box 120, Natchitoches, LA  71458.

The basic foods the Pantry can always use include:
spaghetti (1 or 2 lb. bag)
dried beans (1 or 2 lb. bag)
Mac & Cheese
Peanut Butter
Canned vegetables
Canned meats
rice (1 or 2 lb. bag)

The Cane River Food Pantry distributes to around 180 families the second Saturday of each month at 105 Daniel Street (close to the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center) from 9-11 am.

The Pantry is part of the Feeding America program and serves citizens of Natchitoches Parish only.

Applications may be picked up at the offices of First United Methodist Church in Natchitoches, located at 220 Amulet Street (behind the donut shop).
