We are assisting with the Food Pantry kept by St. Andrew‘s Episcopal Church in Rogers. They have a well-established program dealing with food insecurity that serves 35 to 45 families every Tuesday from 9 AM to 11 AM. Their food comes from bakeries, private donations and the USDA with the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank. However, with supply chain issues, food availability has decreased and costs have risen to a point that they could use some help. The Outreach Committee and Vestry felt this was a good opportunity and want to switch our food collection efforts from Helping Hands to the St. Andrew’s pantry. Contributions will still come to St Theodores and be transported as needed to St. Andrew’s.

The following are the most frequently needed items:

1.      Spaghetti noodles

2.      Spaghetti sauce

3.      Peanut butter

4.      Canned tuna

5.      Canned soups

6.      Canned vegetables

7.      Canned fruits

8.      Ramen noodles

9.      Dried pinto beans

10.    Rice

11.    Canned beans

12.    Plastic grocery bags to distribute the canned goods 

Let’s also remember to continue to bring items for our small pantry on Kingsland Road. If you have questions, contact Al Addington 479-531-6199
