Food Collection for Serving Our Kids

This year, we have partnered with Serving Our Kids to provide needed items on their food donation list, along with serving a few calendar days packing food for the community.  Please bring your donations to any of our meetings prior to December 8th or contact Worthy Matron Barbie to arrange a pickup.

Each weekend Serving Our Kids feeds 3,500 kids in 70 schools who would otherwise go hungry. These kids do not currently receive weekend food bags from any backpack program or other governmental programs, but still face empty plates on the weekends. Southern Nevada’s children don’t understand complex federal eligibility guidelines or the fancy terminology used to designate their eligibility for food. They just know they are hungry.

SOK is looking for the following food items:  NEEDS LIST

  • Ravioli 7.5oz microwaveable open top can
  • Vienna sausage 5oz can
  • Fruit Juice
  • Fruit Cup
  • Fruit Snack
  • Crackers – Individual Serve (No Peanut Butter Please)
  • Cookies – Individual Serve Bag
  • Granola Bar (No Peanuts Please)
  • Pudding Snack
  • Cup of Soup – Nissan or Maruchan
  • Water – 16.9oz. bottles

Items can be dropped off at SOK or gathered by Sunrise OES #28 for a group donation. Please let WM Barbie know if you need to drop off items.
