Non-Perishable Food Items for the Veterans Food Pantry

BNI Hyannis will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Veterans Food Pantry the 1st meeting of each month, beginning June 2nd, 2022. Jim Seymour has provided this list (below) of the most recenly requested and most widely used food items. 

This year, with new food pantry programs in Falmouth, Eastham, and Vineyard Haven, CVOC expects to feed more than 2,000 veterans and their families. New distribution locations are being added during the late Spring of 2022. These are the people in need who we dedicate 100% of our focus on because no veteran, or their family, should ever go hungry in our community.
