At this time of Thanksgiving, it is again time for Thoreau School’s annual Thanksgiving food drive. All collected food is donated to Concord’s local food pantry, Open Table. Open Table feeds over 200 guests each week and gives each family a bag of groceries to bring home. Open Table is able to do this because of the generosity of our community. Any non-perishable foods are appreciated, but these are the “most wanted” items: spaghetti sauce, canned fruit, coffee/tea/hot chocolate mix, cereal, tuna fish/canned stews/soups, jelly, children’s snacks for school (juice boxes, pretzels, fruit cups, etc.), condiments (ketchup, mustard, cooking oil) and all other non-perishable food items. Please: NO CANDY! Our food drive will run from Monday, November 14 – Wednesday, November 23rd. There will be a box in front of the library for your children to bring their items in. Thank you very much for your generosity and contributions!
Amy Hoey, Open Table Chairman
