The Dundalk Eagle - - NEWS -

The Bal­ti­more County Po­lice Depart­ment asks ev­ery res­i­dent to par­tic­i­pate in this year’s Com­mu­nity As­sis­tance Net­work (CAN) Food Drive. Be­gin­ning on Mon­day, Novem­ber 26, do­na­tion boxes will be con­ve­niently lo­cated in the pub­lic ar­eas of all ten po­lice precincts. This pro­vides eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble and se­cure col­lec­tion sites for do­na­tions that will go di­rectly to those who are strug­gling.

Ci­ti­zens can drop off non­per­ish­able food, canned foods, as well as hy­giene and pa­per prod­ucts such as bath­room tis­sue. Some sug­ges­tions of non-per­ish­able nu­tri­tional foods in­clude soups, tuna, salmon, chili, chicken and ham; peanut but­ter, canned fruits and veg­eta­bles; hot and cold ce­re­als; pasta and rice. If pos­si­ble, buy pack­ages that have flip-tops or do not re­quire a can opener.

There are fam­i­lies who must face hunger ever y day. You have the power to help. CAN op­er­ates the largest food pantry in Bal­ti­more County and pro­vides sup­ple­men­tal food to 35 to 40 Bal­ti­more County low-in­come fam­i­lies per day. Your do­na­tion pro­vides sup­ple­men­tal food to the 23,000 peo­ple they serve in Bal­ti­more County each year.
