Soup, oatmeal and milkshake collection Saturday Nov. 26

Dear Friends,

I hope you are well and that you are surviving Thanksgiving Day in good health and humor.

Several days ago I put out an email about collecting dried soups. We need soups with high protein things like beans and meat would be good.

The advice of a friend Steve and Sean we are looking into securing bulk soups. We need EVERYONE’S help to feed our Ukrainian friends.

With the good advice of our friend and coworker Jayne, the collection will also collect dried oatmeal like Quaker’s High Protein Oatmeal which is a very good, nutrient dense food. Each packet has 10 grams of protein.

Also, Carnation’s Breakfast Essentials (a milkshake) would also be good.

No date for sending these goods to Ukraine has been established, yet. Soon something will be decided.

In the meantime, I will be at St Michael’s church hall (569 George St, New Haven) on Saturday, 10-12Noon, to receive the above items. So, only dried soups, high protein oatmeal and the breakfast essentials. No expired foods, please.

Other collection days will be scheduled.
