The Waconia Food Shelf is currently in need of the following items:
Cold weather items: soups, stews, chili, hot cereal, cocoa, tea, and coffee. Personal care items such as toothbrushes (single pack, please, we cannot break a multiple pack apart), toothpaste, deodorant (men’s and woman’s), bar soap, shampoo, and women’s personal items such as tampax. Many of our clients are pursuing finding work and personal hygiene care is critical.
Holiday Food Items
We are collecting traditional and specialty food items for the holidays that can be easily stored: boxed potato flakes, gravy packets, boxed stuffing, jello, evaporated milk, chicken broth, vegetable broth, canned vegetables and canned cranberry.
Hearty soups that can be added to rice or noodles to make a meal are needed. Canned meals that children like such as Beef Ravioli are needed for the winter. Other “kid friendly” items are also welcomed.
Watch our sign outside on the corner of Elm and Main for item requests.
