School Food Drive 2021

Continued Need For Food

As NBCRI looks forward to 2021 we will continue to help the Norwood Elementary School Families and Norwood Neighbors as well as vetted individuals.


Attached is a list of foods & items that are needed.


NBCRI supports people who need food in the following ways:


  • Students at Norwood Elementary School will receive a "backpack" with items/supplies to get students through the weekend that are food insecure.


  • Families from Norwood Elementary School will be serviced with food through a shared food pantry located at Holliman School.


  • Continue to support families within the Norwood neighborhood that are recommended either by the school, church members, or the Norwood Boys & Girls Clubs. Families are then vetted.


  • NBCRI also actively monitors social media for those who may be in need.


In addition to the list below, NBCRI is also in need of gift cards so families can pick up fresh items.  


Should you have food/gift cards that need to be dropped off, please contact the church to make arrangements with our mission team.

941-7040.


*If you would prefer to make a monetary donation and let us do the shopping for you, please click on the link to the right (GIVE). You may use your credit card to donate. Please click on the category SCHOOL FOOD PANTRY.


Below is the list of items needed.  


When shopping we also encourage you to look for items that have pull lids or can be cooked in a microwave. Most times, kids are cooking for themselves or others may be living out of motels/hotels. You are also invited to provide a good old fashion hand-can opener.


At this time, we do not need vegetables, nor beans of any kind. (black, red, kidney, garbanzo)

As well as plastic silverware, plates, bowls for those individuals who are living in motels/homeless.

 

Don't forget those Gift Cards to local markets for fresh products (bread, milk, meat)


If you happen to think about it...we are in need of strong reusable bags to deliver items in.
