Oregon Food Bank - Project Second Wind Food and Fund Drive 2018

Project Second Wind, the Oregon Food Bank’s annual food and fund drive, will come to Lewis the week of March 5th through March 9th. Each classroom will have a collection box. Fourth and fifth grade students will empty these boxes each day to record and box up each classroom’s collected food items. Please join Lewis and the Oregon Food Bank to provide a “second wind” of hunger relief after the holidays in our community. 

Please consider donating healthy, low fat and low sugar products from this list of most wanted foods.

·         canned meats (i.e., tuna, chicken, salmon)
·         canned and boxed meals (i.e., soup, chili, stew, macaroni and cheese)
·         peanut butter and other nut butters
·         canned or dried beans and peas (i.e., black, pinto, lentils)
·         pasta, rice, and cereal
·         canned fruits and vegetables 
·         100 percent fruit or vegetable juice (canned, plastic or boxed)
