For more than five years, we’ve held a summer food drive for The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts to help its team provide essential services to people in need throughout our region. This cause will remain near and dear to our hearts as long as there are people in our community who suffer from food insecurity. Whether you are a Freedom Credit Union member or not, we invite you to support our summer food drive throughout July and August.
We are collecting non-perishable food items and cash donations at all our branch locations. We hope to top that this year.
Suggested donations of non-perishable food and personal care items include:
- Hot and cold cereals
- Packaged rice and grains
- Pasta and noodles
- Canned beans and vegetables
- Canned and dried fruit
- Peanut butter and nuts
- Granola bars and crackers
- Powdered or evaporated milk
- Instant potatoes
- Canned chicken, fish and meat
- Cooking oils and spices
- Canned soups, stews and chili
- Powdered or canned baby formula
- Diapers, wipes and toilet paper
- Shampoo and body wash
- Toothpaste and toothbrushes
Since 1982, The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts has helped provide much-needed food to area residents in Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire counties. It sources its products from donations, which it distributes to participating pantries, meal sites and shelters throughout the region. Neighbors Helping Neighbors: Support Our Summer Food Drive
