MESA'S FALL FOOD DRIVE, OCTOBER 18 - 22, 2021

The annual MESA Fall Food Drive will be held during the week of October 18. This event provides much needed support for the Our Daily Bread food pantry and the Mansfield community. Donations can be sent in with your students beginning next Monday and placed in their classroom's collection box.


MESA has provided a list of suggested items by grade that the pantry especially needs, but any non-perishable, unexpired food item is welcome. The suggested list for Grades 3 - 5 is: Chef Boyardee canned pasta (beef ravioli, SpaghettiOs), brand-name cereal (please no jumbo or double packs), full-size boxes of kid-friendly snacks, Hormel Dinty Moore microwavable meal kits, baking mixes (brownies, muffins, etc.)


Please note that the pantry has an ample supply of canned vegetables (except corn),

canned fruit, and Campbellā€™s Chicken Noodle soup and does not need these items at this

time.
