Mini Price Storage is currently collecting both food and monetary donations to help with the unfortunate shortage the Foodbank of South Eastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore is experiencing! You can help make a difference by dropping off non-perishable food items or monetary contributions to our 1117 Valley Drive or 7641 Sewells Point Road, Norfolk locations now through August 21st.
The shortage is occurring for a few reasons. During the summer months people who normally contribute to the Foodbank are busy with various activities including vacations, so the number of food drives dwindle. Also during the summer, children are not being fed at school. So the Foodbank sees an even greater need from low-income families during this time of the year. The help the Foodbank provides is necessary to take a little bit of stress away from parents who are trying to do what they can for their children.
Some suggested items for donation are:
- Peanut Butter
- Canned Ham
- Canned Chicken
- Dried Fruit
- Canned Fruit and Vegetables
- Instant Potatoes
- Whole Grain Crackers
- Baby Formula and Food
- Baby Wipes
Items should be non-perishable in non-breakable containers please.
Thousands of area residents benefit from the Foodbank annually and many are children. Please consider contributing today. It will be greatly appreciated!
