2nd Harvest Food Drive Ends Nov. 20

November 16, 2020

The SGS annual 2nd Harvest Food Drive continues through Friday the 20th.  This year grades 6-12 each have their own donation boxes with a competition between grades.  The Lower School will be collecting as one unit, so LS families can drop off donations just inside the doors of ESAC as you drive up for morning student drop off.  Everyone else can bring donations into the MS and US boxes in the courtyards.  All food donated will go directly to families in Spokane that are unable to afford food.  In Spokane alone, 1 in 8 people including 1 in 5 children are food insecure.  Saint George’s food drive is the biggest donation that 2nd Harvest gets from any organization!  For families that are choosing to social distance, you can always donate directly to 2nd Harvest at:  Every $1 donated equals 5 meals.  

Things that can be donated include any canned goods as well as packaged nonperishable food items.  Things that are most needed include:
- Canned Fish, and Lean Meats
- Healthy soups and Stews
- Dry or Canned Beans
- Whole Grain Pastas, Rice, and Cereal
- Canned fruits and Veggies
- Peanut Butter and other Nut Butters
