Kirk Care, the food pantry and utility assistance program for those living in the Kirkwood R-7 attendance area, is working with Greentree Community Church and the St. Louis Area Food Bank to host a Food Drive Through on June 11, 2022, on the grounds of Greentree. Anyone in need of food can drive through on June 11 and get a box of non-perishable food and a box of fresh fruits and vegetables. We plan to have enough to serve 150 people in our community. To do this, we need more than 6200 non-perishable food and personal care items. How do you gather that many items? Well, like eating an elephant, one bite at a time! In this case, we’ll say 150 items at a time. We’ve decided to ask for donations by item, so we need 150 packages of corn bread mix and 150 cans of stew etc. etc. for 40 plus items. We are inviting you to sign up to bring 150 of any item(s) you choose and bring those to Greentree Community Church, 100 Kirkwood Place, 63122 between May 8 and May 25. You can do this by yourself, with the help of your family, with a small group or a civic group. Just click on: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0B45ADAA2AAAFD0-june to sign up for your item. Let’s all help to take a bite out of food insecurity in our community!
