Birchwood Food Desert Staple Items Needed

Even if we aren't having a pantry drive, you can still donate to the Birchwood Food Desert Fighters. Below is a list of staple items always needed.


Another way to help is to plant extra in your garden to share.  When the vegetables are ready they can be shared on any Saturday, 10:00 am–2:00 pm at Industrial Bank, 3233 Northwest Avenue.
