The Peoria Anti-Hunger Coalition will host the 2014 Foodshare Canathon. This will be the 30th annual canathon! In the past more than 15,000,000 pounds of food has been donated to Peoria food shelters.
CANATHON bags will be inserted in the Peoria Journal Star on Monday, March 3, 2014. We ask recepients to fill the bags with nonperishable and canned food and place on their doorstep by l:00 p.m.
Suggested food items include canned meat or tuna, soups, stews, chili, peanut butter, vegetables, fruit, and boxes dinners or macaroni and cheese.
Drop boxes will be in place at all area KROGER SUPERMARKETS, CURVES, PEORIA FIRE STATIONS, SUBWAY. If no one comes to your door on March 9, we ask you just drop your bag of food in one of the drop boxes.
