The Chester Lions Club collected items for the Chester Food Pantry at the Chester ShopRite on October 27, 2012. ShopRite patrons showed overwhelming generosity, donating large quantities of foods that will be distributed to families in the area. As the holiday season approaches the needs become more and more acute. Donations are always welcome.
Among the items needed by the Chester Area Food Pantry are: mayonnaise, gravy, canned seafood, cranberry sauce, BBQ sauce, hot cereal, pumpkin pie filling, canned meat, stuffing, instant potatoes, desert mix, muffin mix, prepared foods, stew, chili, cleaning products, soap, body lotion, deodorant and hair conditioner.
Foodstuffs for the Food Pantry may be dropped off at Chester ShopRite, Weichert Realtors, Main Street, The Chester Library, West Main Street, Starbucks, Chester Springs Shopping Center, and the Plant Detective, Route 206.
