New College Institute will be holding a holiday food drive in support of Community Storehouse. The drive will run Monday, December 12, 2022 through Thursday, December 22, 2022.
There will be a box at the receptionist desk on the first floor for food donations. All donations of food are accepted, but currently are short on: pasta sauce, boxed meals (like hamburger helper, instant potatoes, etc.), and canned meats.
There will also be a glass jar at the receptionist desk for any monetary donations for the Community Storehouse. You can also make donations online at.
Any funds that are collected through this drive will be earmarked for their newest endeavor, a Community Kitchen which will expand services to include providing hot meals on-site and by delivery.
The Community Storehouse’s mission is “to feed those in need & reduce food waste while investing in solutions that foster self-sufficiency.” Their organization services seniors and disabled individuals with ongoing services, through an on-site grocery store, and through a home delivery program for those who struggle with transportation or mobility. Travis J. Adkins, Community Storehouse’s Executive Director said, “We are passionately pursuing a hunger-free community, with dignity and reliability. And we’re so glad to partner with NCI!”
Since 2001, Community Storehouse has provided over 2.5 million meals, and has the capacity to deliver 2,000 meals a week.
