The Berkeley Food Pantry recently learned that the Alameda County Community Food Bank cannot guarantee having special Thanksgiving items available for purchase by food pantries at greatly reduced prices this year. This means that the Pantry manager may need to shop elsewhere (at greater expense) for items like stuffing mix, canned pumpkin and cranberry sauce to go with the whole chicken which Pantry guests receive.
Can you help with a tax-deductible dollar donation of any size? Checks made payable to the Berkeley Food Pantry can be mailed to the Pantry, 1600 Sacramento Street, Berkeley 94702 or brought to the “Donate Food Here” area in the Hall of Entrance on Sunday mornings.
Small change is also welcome. Anne Rowe will add any donations to our regular generous collection of cereal and peanut butter and cereal to deliver to the Pantry on Monday mornings.
