The Lutheran Social Services Network of Hope provides hope and healing for people in crisis. The LSS Food Pantries serve people in need by offering a source of nourishment to families who are food insecure. Active in hunger relief since 1927, the LSS Food Pantries operate an 11-county food pantry system, one of Ohio’s largest. Our pantries provide emergency food to 4,000 families each month.
Our holiday traditions are deeply intertwined with food. But tough choices-between food or medicine, food or utilities, food or transportation, and even food or housing-mean that many of our neighbors struggle to enjoy the festive meal that graces the Thanksgiving table. You can help by donating Thankfull Holiday meal bags to help families in need celebrate Thanksgiving! Bags are distributed to families with a turkey, bread and produce for their Thanksgiving meal.
Bags should contain (only):
* 2 pouches or one box of mashed potatoes
* 2 cans or jar of fruit (peaches, applesauce, pears, etc.)
* 3 cans of green beans
* 2 cans of corn
* 2 cans of pumpkin
* 1 can of cranberry sauce
* 1 box or bag of stuffing mix
* 1 turkey gravy packet
* 1 boxed yellow cake mix
Contents should be assembled in reusable shopping bags. Thanks in advance for your contributions between now and Sunday, November 12!
