5 Items to Give to your Local Food Drive

By Zoe Verelli

There are so many ways to give back to the community and help those who are less fortunate and in need of attention and assistance.

For those who are financially capable of making contributions, we at YA Media would like to inform our readers about a cause that we enjoy working closely with, the LaSalle Community Comprehensive High School (LCCHS) local food drive.

This food drive is approaching its 30th anniversary, with highly influential and dedicated educators like Bob McKinnon, Paul Sowney, Jason Thivierge, David Chisolm, and Derek Mott.

These instructors form a strong and united foundation as they continue to work towards providing local families with the opportunity of enjoying a wide range of foods for the Holiday season.

If some of you are unsure about what type of foods are best for donating, we’ve compiled a list of 5 items:



  1. Peanut Butter / Nutella

These two spreads are simply delicious and easy to come by. Unfortunately, not all families have the luxury of buying them. For this reason, they are both great items to donate!



  1. Bread

Bread is practical food, one that most of us ingest on the daily, which makes it absolutely perfect to contribute.

  1. Cereal

Add some milk to it, and you’ve got yourself yummy breakfast food. Some people even enjoy munching on cereals without milk as a snack. Either way, it’s an item most families would love to have.



  1. Pasta Noodles

Any shape or brand of pasta noodles is tasty. They can be used as a side dish or main meal, there are so many options! Either way, it’s an ideal item to donate.



  1. Canned Sauces

Sauce can be used to accommodate and improve the taste of any dish. You can never go wrong with canned sauces, that’s for sure!

All individuals are encouraged to participate in and volunteer for the 2016 LCCHS food drive. You can make donations directly to the school by calling 514-595-2050.

Remember, only $75 sponsors a family for a well-deserved Holiday dinner.

Spread the word and some of your Holiday spirit! You’ll be helping to improve the situations of so many local families!
