Please join us in helping to fight the hunger problem in Oregon! April 2nd-10th our school will be collecting nutritious canned food to be donated to The Oregon Food Bank. Our class goal this year is 125 cans! Our school goal is 3000! A percentage of the items we collect will be donated to our local food pantry right here in West Linn. As a way to encourage nutritional donations, each day there is a “Gold Star” item. If we donate the “Gold Star” item needed for that day, our class name will be announced over the intercom to recognize our effort. Just to clarify, we take any healthy food on any day of the drive. Gold Star donations just get our class name announced over the intercom the next morning. Here is the “Gold Star” schedule: April 2rd:canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon, spam), April 3rd:soups, stews or chili with protein, April 7th:canned fruit and 100% fruit juice, April 8th:breakfast cereal (boxes of whole grain cereal, pancake/waffle mix), April 9th:peanut butter, April 10th:personal items (bar soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toilet paper. Additional items needed: canned veggies, brown rice, whole grain pastas, beans (canned or dried), unsaturated cooking oil and shelf stable milk. *Please check the expiration date on all food items* Thank you for partnering with us!
