If you’re a BRIGHT-FM listener, you’ve probably been hearing about the Pantry Project for quite some time now. Maybe you’ve heard about it on the radio or read about it on our blog, but have you had the chance to participate yet? If you’re not familiar with the event, Pantry Project is a series of van stops we hold each month where people are invited to come visit us and drop off food donations for local pantries.

Each Pantry Project has been such a success thanks to God and our generous BRIGHT-FM community, and we need your help to keep going!

Whether it’s gathering together some items to donate, or praying for God to provide through these events, we want to invite you to get involved with this month’s batch of van stops!

If you’re able to donate, below are some ideas on what to buy and how to create a meal box out of the items pantries are in need of most, as well as details on where we will be this month. Come on out and see us!

Breakfast Box:

• Pancake Mixes
• Muffin Mixes
• Pancake Syrup
• Granola Bars

Dinner/Lunch Box:

• Canned Meats (Spam, corned beef, ham, salmon)
• Canned Fruit
• Canned Meals (Chef Boyardee, Stews, Chili)
• Pasta Sides
• Potato Sides
• Mashed Potatoes
• Rice Sides 

Dessert Box:

• Cake Mixes
• Brownie Mixes
• Frosting

Toiletry Box:

• Toothbrush
• Toothpaste
• Face wash
• Body wash
• Shampoo & conditioner
• Razors & shaving cream
• Laundry detergent

All of the items in these lists have been specifically requested by the pantries that BRIGHT-FM is partnering with. It could be an entire box or just one item, either way, all donations are appreciated and prayed over before BRIGHT-FM hands them off!

If you’re able to, we’d love to see you at one of our next van stops, sponsored by Extreme Family Outreach:

Saturday, October 8th, 12 PM – 2 PM at Extreme Family Outreach in Edgewood

Thursday, October 20th, 4 PM – 6 PM at Weis Market in Dundalk

Friday, October 28th, 4 PM – 6 PM at Weis Market in Nottingham

Whether or not you’re able to donate, we appreciate you, and we would love it if you partnered with us in praying that God would provide for those in need and that He would be glorified in the process.
