With Fairfax County Schools closed through the academic year, South Lakes High School’s food pantry has shifted to a new location.
The pantry is collecting items at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, which is located at 1133 Reston Avenue.
Although organizers are encouraging residents to ship donations to the church, residents can also take part in “no-contact” collection on Mondays from 2-4 p.m and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to noon.
“We are trying to keep the collection and packing simple,” organizers wrote. “We are so incredibly grateful for the ability to use Good Shepherd Lutheran Church to collect and pack food.”
The pantry is in need of the following items
- Pasta sauce
- Canned tomatoes
- Dry rice
- Peanut butter
- Microwave popcorn
- Granola bars
- Canned fruit or applesauce
- Canned tuna
- Canned Veggies
- Toilet paper (packages in one roll per bag)
- Maxi pads
On the first day of food collection yesterday (Monday), the pantry collected 1,228 pounds of food, which significant donations from Restoration Church in Reston and Floris United Methodist Church.
