Food Bank Sunday

This Sunday is Food Bank Sunday, a time to gather food and funds for the Billings Food Bank.

The food bank is gearing up for Easter and would appreciate donations of small hams, fresh eggs and potatoes.

New and expanding services lead to a variety of needs. An example is the sack lunch street outreach and youth programs where lunch meats, sliced cheese, small bags of chips or other “go-withs,” individual-size fruits, pudding, fresh fruits and vegetables, shelf-stable milk, sandwich bags and sack lunch bags are used.

Fresh fruits and vegetables, fresh eggs, milk and margarine are also items needed for assistance to families, seniors and youth programs. Items requiring refrigeration should not be left in the Billings Food Bank barrels; they should be delivered to the food bank, or call for pickup.

Special appeal for garden produce: The food bank can use all the produce available. Planting a row or two, or an entire garden, will help provide nutritious, locally grown food for neighbors. To take part in a large community-type garden, call Sheryle Shandy, executive director, at the food bank, 259-2856. Also call the food bank for more information on programs, to volunteer or for a speaker.

The Billings Food Bank is at 2112 Fourth Ave. N., and the mailing address is P.O. Box 1158, Billings MT 59103.
