Matt Talbot Kitchen & Outreach says they are in immediate need for items to stock their emergency food pantry. Canned meats such as tuna and chicken, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, macaroni & cheese, other boxed meals, tuna helper, soup, powdered milk, pancake mix & syrup, cereal bars, and canned fruit are especially needed.
For many clients, Matt Talbot Kitchen says the emergency food pantry (or box) is the only food in the home until the next pay check. Every effort is made to provide a box or bag of food that includes the makings of a complete meal for multiple days. Currently the shelves in the pantry are bare in many areas and we are not able to put together a complete food pantry for those seeking assistance.
