On Saturday, May 11, the Wellesley Food Pantry will once again be the beneficiary of the annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive sponsored by the letter carriers of the U.S. Postal Service. As the carriers complete their regular routes around town they will also be collecting non-perishable food items to be donated to WFP. Residents are asked to please have items out by 9:00 a.m. on Saturday for pick-up. We need peanut butter, pasta sauce, coffee, almond butter, canned meats and fish (but not tuna), cooking oil, bagged rice, soups, and meals in a can. No expired foods please. This drive is important for filling our shelves ahead of the slower donations typical of the summer season. Further information is on our website: wellesleyfoodpantry.org.
Here’s the list of the Food Pantry’s most-needed items:
Coffee and tea
Jam and jelly
Canned salmon and sardines
