14th Annual Food Share "Pounding" at Grocery Outlet
Sponsored by Mon Ami Gourmet Deli - Matching Pound for Pound
Stop by Grocery Outlet on Saturday, November 22nd, from 9a.m. - 1p.m. and help us feed the community! Food Share will be taking (food and cash) donations that day at Grocery Outlet in order to help make Thanksgiving a well fed holiday for those less fortunate than ourselves. For every pound of food donated, Cindy Wobbe, owner of Mon Ami Gourmet Deli, will also donate a pound of food to Food Share. This is Cindy's 14th year hosting this event and we are so grateful for her help over the years. Thank you, Cindy! See you on the 22nd!
Food Share has received numerous phone calls about the date of our annual "Turkey Give Away". Although Food Share has never had a turkey give away, the Soroptimists in the past have conducted their Christmas Turkey Basket Give Away at Food Share. This year, however, the Soroptimist sponsored event will be held at the Siuslaw Middle School. Please see the "Events" tab on this website for details about the Soroptimist event in December.
Please note that although Food Share expects to receive donations of turkeys from the Food Share "Pounding" this Saturday, there is no guaranteed number of turkeys that we will have available for distribution to our clients during their normal monthly visit.
