Strangers Helping Strangers will be hosting a Canned Food Drive for the Food Bank of Western MA!

Some of the most-needed items for canned food drives include: canned products such as fruit, pasta/ravioli, beans, vegetables, or tuna fish; rice and pasta; healthy snacks such as granola bars; peanut butter and jelly; and cereal. No glass jars, please.

It’s a great idea to try to collect items that can be combined to make a healthy meal, such as:
Peanut butter and jelly
Rice and canned or dry beans
Spaghetti and canned spaghetti sauce
Canned or boxed pasta/rice meals and canned vegetables
Canned or instant soups/stews and rice
Dry oatmeal and canned fruit

Did you know that in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire Counties in Western Massachusetts, approximately 1 in every 8 people suffers from chronic food shortages or needs emergency food assistance? In some areas, rates of hunger and food insecurity are more than 6x higher than the Massachusetts statewide average.

Expect the most ridiculous, and we'll possibly top it!
