With prices sky-rocketing, many people are finding it more and more challenging to put food on the table. This is especially true for young families and senior citizens on a fixed income. The Macedon Center Food Shed is currently in need of nonperishable food items and hygiene items such as (those in bold type are high demand items):
–pasta (shells, spaghetti, macaroni, ziti, etc.)
–pasta sauce in plastic jars
–canned chicken, ham, Spam
–canned veggies (all varieties)
–canned fruits (all varieties)
-dried fruits (ex: raisins, apricots, cranberries)
-Stove Top stuffing
–cereal (ex: Cheerios, Raisin Bran, etc.)
–hearty canned soups
-canned stew (ex: Dinty Moore)
–canned beans (ex: chick peas, black beans, red beans, white beans)
-salad dressing and condiments
–jelly in plastic jar
-pancake mix and syrup
–juice (all varieties)
-cake mixes and frostings
-shampoo & conditioner
It is difficult to keep up with the current level of need. If you are able to help keep the pantry stocked, please consider dropping off a few items.
Please DO NOT leave items that are not either food or hygiene related. The Macedon Center Food Shed does not need: artificial flowers, puzzle books, craft items, old clothing, etc. In general, if it is not food or something a person can use to keep themselves or their home clean and healthy it should be brought to Good Will for donation. Please keep this in mind since donations that are not food or hygiene related create a lot of extra work for the people who volunteer to care for the shed.
Thanks to all who have donated to the shed and continue to support the community!
Where is the shed located so we can drop off items?
The shed is located on Route 31 F across from the United Methodist Church in their parking lot. Thank you for this question!
