Let’s Meet the 500 Can Challenge for the Food Pantry

By November 12, 2021November 16th, 2021Hunger & Clothing, News, Serve

Our middle and high school youth are sponsoring the 500 Can Challenge for the Lutheran Food Pantry during the month of November. This is a Thrivent-sponsored event and if we collect at least 500 nonperishable food items for the Pantry we will receive an additional $500 check from the Nebraska Thrivent chapter.

Some items that are needed for the Pantry are:

  • Canned fruits and veggies
  • Rice
  • Pancake mixes and syrup
  • Canned meats
  • Pasta
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Canned soup
  • Canned beans (chili, kidney, pinto)
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Canned meals (spaghetti & meatballs, ravioli, etc.)
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Breakfast bars (Pop Tarts, granola bars, oatmeal/fruit bars)
  • Snack items (small packages of cookies, nuts, fruit-flavored snacks, etc.)
  • Personal care items (shampoo, bar soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes)

Please leave your items by the display in the Gathering Center. Last year’s challenge collected 2,666 items. Let’s beat that number!
