The Monday night "I AM" Outreach Group is hosting a food drive for the Ridgefield Food Pantry through October as a way of supporting local families who struggle to make ends meet. Each month will focus on a different food theme. August is "Clean Up ” month with a focus on personal care and household cleaning products, such as shampoo/conditioner, deodorant, bath/hand soap, toilet paper and facial tissue, laundry detergent, paper towel, dish soap, etc. These items are often left out of regular donations, yet are critical to supporting healthy lives. Of course, any shelf stable food item will also be greatly appreciated during the month as well. Of course, any shelf stable food item will be greatly appreciated; you do not need to keep with this theme.Place donations in the designated basket in the Narthex.

To date, we have collected and delivered over 70 items equally 80 pounds of shelf stable breakfast items and baking supplies, such as hot and cold cereals, coffee/tea, pancake mix, flour, sugar and shelf stable milk to the Food Pantry.
