Donations needed include unopened & unexpired rice, pasta, quinoa; pickles/relish; canned vegetables; vegetarian baked beans; oatmeal (both single-serving packets and large containers); single-serving cereal; fruit cups; applesauce cups; granola/breakfast bars; crackers; individual-servings of mini-muffins; nuts; chicken/beef broth boxes (no cans); raisins; water bottles; and canned and dry cat food. Donations can be dropped off at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, located at the intersection of Mt. Vernon & Oxford Avenues.
