Food Drive

This Halloween Essex and Hawthorne will be participating in the Me to We, WE Scare Hunger Food Drive!

Hunger affects people from all walks of life, including those you might not suspect. People who experience food insecurity are often forced to make difficult choices. Parents choose between skipping meals and feeding their children. Do they buy groceries or pay the rent or electricity bill? When we come together to collect food for people struggling with hunger, we can help ensure they have the resources to feed themselves and their families. By supporting WE Scare Hunger, you can contribute to your community and also raise awareness of the root causes of hunger.

We appreciate all donated food, but there are certain items that are always in need because of their high nutritional value.

  • Baby food and formula
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned fish and meat
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Rice, grains, lentils, beans
  • Dried pasta
  • Pasta sauce and canned tomatoes (whole or crushed)
  • Cans of soup and stew
  • Powdered, canned and tetra pak milk

Teachers will have food collection boxes set up to receive donations from Oct 29th to Nov. 2nd. Let’s all work together to support families in need!
