KELSEYVILLE, Calif. – The Kelseyville Community Food Bank, a collaborative effort of the Kelseyville United Methodist Church, the Unitarian Universalist Community and Kelseyville Presbyterian Church, is seeking food donations to help feed the hungry in Lake County.
The food bank is open the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m.
It is located at the Kelseyville United Methodist Church on Main Street in Kelseyville.
At the giveaway on Tuesday, June 26, they served more than 113 people, and are out of food.
Please consider helping them with donations of items listed below. They serve the Kelseyville area, so they are helping your neighbors.
This week their food list includes: peanut butter, cereals, powdered milk and soy milk, microwave popcorn, family size cans of food and juices, small bags of rice, pasta, Rice a Roni, any variety of canned fruit and fruit cups, any variety of canned vegetables, soups, Ravioli, Beef a Roni, macaroni and cheese, diced tomatoes or tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, refried beans, jelly, meat products, tortillas and canned tuna.
For the summer, cans of lemonade, Kool-Aid or iced tea, as well as any extra garden produce would be welcomed.
They can always use extra hands. They prepare and bag on the Monday before the giveaway at 10:30 a.m. at the Methodist Church, and they are ready to serve their guests at 3:30 on Tuesday.
Donations are gladly accepted daily from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Kelseyville Presbyterian Church or on Sunday mornings at any of the participating churches. All nonperishable items are greatly appreciated.
The food bank is urgently looking for organizations to collect food for us.
If your nonprofit or event could help them with collection, it would be greatly appreciated. If they could find six organizations to host a canned food drive for them, it would keep their pantry stocked.
If you have any questions, or would like to help us with a food drive, call Julie at the KPC office at 707-279-1104.
