We always think about our Community members that need a little help when the weather turns cold and our minds turn toward the holiday feasts.  However, more and more people are having to turn to our local food shelf and supplies are low.  There's an easy way to get involved while you're running your errands this Saturday.  It's the annual CHUM Share Food Drive.

Think about this, there are parents in our community that skip meals themselves to make sure their children have food.  You always think that happens somewhere else in the U.S. not in our own Community.  But, there's a way to help that is easy, convenient and you can do it while you're getting your own errands done.  You know you'll need to stop at a grocery store on Saturday, October 29, anyhow.  Choose one of the following to stop at between 8a-4p and get a list of what the food shelf needs from volunteers (like members of the boy scouts) as you enter.

Purchase those items, a whole cart full, or simply make a cash donation at:

  • Super One Foods
  • Mount Royal Fine Foods
  • Cub Foods
  • Whole Foods Co-op
  • Sam's Club
  • Woodland Market
  • Wal-Mart

CHUM's suggested donations:  pears, fruit cocktail, pineapple, mandarin oranges, chicken noodle & cream of mushroom soup, peanut butter, tuna, spam, Spaghettios, chili, stew, chunky soups, Pasta sides, rice-a-roni & ramen, cold cereal, pork and beans.

Food will be distributed through CHUM's Duluth Emergency Food Shelf, the Salvation Army and the Hermantown Food Shelf.
