Help stock the Cedar Springs food pantry

Help stock the Cedar Springs food pantry

Edward Jones is collecting food Oct. 15-Nov. 19

Would you like to have a chance to really make a difference in the community?

Buy a few extra items when you buy groceries this week to donate to the local food pantry and drop them off at our local Edward Jones branch.

The Cedar Springs Community Food pantry, located at the Cedar Springs United Methodist Church on Main Street, works in conjunction with North Kent Community Services. The pantry feeds hundreds of local families each year and depends on the community to help restock their shelves, especially during the busy fall and winter months. One local business spearheads a drive each year to do just that.

Edward Jones, 4027 17 Mile Road, Cedar Springs, achieved their goal last year of collecting 2,500 pounds of food, and so they’ve raised the goal this year. They hope to collect a whopping 2,750 pounds of food this year by November 19! In a year where grocery shopping is hard, this may be a challenge but if we pull together we can do it!

They started this annual food drive in 2010, and over the last 10 years, they’ve collected over 18,000 pounds to benefit our neighbors in need.

Non-perishable foods can be dropped off at the Edward Jones office Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

Suggestions for the pantry include boxed or canned meals such as soups, hamburger helper, macaroni and cheese, rice, pasta, spaghetti sauce, baking and pancake mix; and canned meats. Personal care items such as bar soap, laundry soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and toilet paper will also be accepted, but not weighed. No cash donations accepted.

Call 696-9370 for more information.
