Food baskets for the needy

The City College Food Pantry is putting together and distributing ten holiday dinner baskets to needy students.

Five of the baskets will be distributed for Thanksgiving and the other five will be distributed during Christmas.

Although there are only ten baskets that will be distributed, the food pantry staff said those ten baskets will help.

“Even if you only help one person, then you made a difference,” said Food Pantry Advisor Cherie Bromley-Taylor.

The holiday meals will include items such as dressing, vegetables, fruit cocktails, sweet potatoes, ingredients for green bean casserole and a grocery store gift certificate so that you can buy a turkey, ham, or any other ingredients that one may want or need.

These baskets are designed to feed about four to six people.

The food pantry advisor and its volunteers are very proud to provide students in need with complete holiday dinners.

“To be apart of this is really cool. It feels good to help out others,” said food pantry volunteer Jackie Castillo.

Students in need of a holiday meal can go to L-121 and place their name in the jar to enter the drawing.

The deadline to submit your name for the drawing for the holiday baskets is Nov. 16 for the first set of baskets and Dec. 14 for the second.

If you enter your name for the first holiday dinner basket and do not get picked, your name will transfer over to the next drawing.
