Canned Food Drive: November 4th-December 6th

CANNED FOOD DRIVE

Help Families in Need in Our Community

Klatt Elementary Student Council is organizing a food drive to meet a community need for Food Bank of Alaska during the month of November.
Every 1.2 pounds of food we collect is the equivalent of a meal for one person. The students will collect nonperishable items from your child’s classroom each morning.
Most wanted food items are:

  • Canned produce–vegetables, tomato sauce, fruit packed in water or light syrup
  • Dried fruits
  • Dried meats and beans
  • Whole grains–quinoa, rice, pasta
  • Cereal–low sugar, instant oatmeal
  • Prepared meals–low sodium soups, pop top meals for kids, kid friendly healthy snacks
  • Canned proteins–tuna, chicken
  • Nuts and nut butters
  • Milks–powdered and shelf stable

Thank you for your support. Klatt is the best community with the most caring kids around!
