It’s estimated that more than 4 million seniors are eligible for nearly $4.5 billion in food benefits, but they are not enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Why? Many simply don’t know about the program. September is Hunger Action Month. Help us spread the word—SNAP helps hungry seniors and it’s easy to get started!

As of 9 am Tuesday morning (8/26), we have 124 cases of bananas available in Comstock Park. They are still slightly green but will need to move quickly! Order today (Tuesday August 26) or tomorrow (Wednesday August 27) for pickup by Thursday (August 28) – or if you missed them on your pre-scheduled order, simply request an add-on when you arrive.
If your program is serving children’s snacks, you might want to think about a nice little combination we’ve got in stock right now: Dunk A Roos and butter cream frosting. The Dunk A Roos have been repacked into 2 pound bags, and the frosting comes in a 30 pound pail. If you’re going to be serving 480 snacks over the course of a week, you should be able to cover that for only $27.68 in handling fees on 10 cases of the repacked Dunk A Roos and a single bucket of frosting.
If you’re going to search by name on PWW, just type in the search terms “dunk” and “butter” (separately).
The Food Bank’s inventory is chock full of eggs! We’ve got white eggs and brown eggs, small eggs and medium eggs – and we’d love for you to order some today! (We’re expecting 8 more skids on Friday, so if you won’t be here ’til next week, feel free to wait for those instead.)
Find them on the online ordering system, PWW, by searching for “egg” – watch out for the fried patties (or get some of those, too) and keep in mind these are fresh shell eggs that need to be handled gently. Help us move them out quickly!
