Saturday June 12th Pick-up!
Summer is on the way and it's time once again to mark your calendars and set reminders for our next pick up day, Saturday, JUNE 12th!
Following are the important details about our upcoming pick up:
If you will be missing Saturday, June 12th's pick up, please be sure to email us to let us know so we do not stop by your home. If you've already notified us and received a confirmation back, you do not need to notify us again.
Please use your reusable ASG red bag for this pickup. If you dropped off last time and didn't grab a replacement bag at the food bank office, feel free to use another type of bag, but please clearly mark it with "ASG" so our drivers know it's okay to take from your porch!
If our volunteer drivers do not find a bag waiting at your address, they will not ring or knock on your door. Just a friendly reminder to please make sure it's outside by 9am. :)
NO Sunday or Monday make up days this month. If you do not have your bag out on your porch by 9:00am Saturday, or it's missed, we regret we will be unable to pick it up later. You may either drop it off directly at the food bank (details below), or wait until our next pickup day.
If you prefer to drop your bag off directly to The Salvation Army's (TSA) food bank instead of having us pick it up on June 12th, feel free to do so, but please email us to let us know you will not need pickup at your home. TSA has a cart outside their front office door for drop offs. They're located at 3001 R Avenue, and their regular office hours are Mon - Thurs, 9am-4pm (closed 12-1pm for lunch). Replacement red bags for next time are available just inside TSA's office door in their lobby.
Current Food Needs: In addition to the typical foods found on the tag attached to your red bag, current food needs include spaghetti sauce, baked beans/pork & beans, tomato sauce/diced, cereal, and jams/jellies. A lower priority need is toilet paper and paper towels.
(Please note, the food bank still has plenty of the following, and does NOT NEED: mac & cheese, top ramen, cup of noodles.)
Special Request: **Please remember these are EXTRA items to add to your bag should you choose. Otherwise, please focus on food shortages.**
Kid friendly foods -- granola bars, graham crackers, individually packaged snack bars, breakfast bars, trail mix, fruit cups, crackers, and chips.
