Nuns from Western Pennsylvania collecting food for the hungry

Written by Ann Rodgers on .

Catholic sisters throughout Western Pennsylvania are sponsoring a food drive for the poor as part of the global church’s World Day for Consecrated Life. It’s the second time they’ve done this, and last year’s drive brought in more than 13 truckloads of food and more than $2,000 in donations for local food pantries.
The drive is going on now and ends Sunday Feb 3, 2013. Suggested food items are canned vegetables, soups, beans, tuna, pasta (including mac & cheese), rice, baby food, forumula, cereal, peanut butter & jelly or sauces.
A complete list of collection sites and contact information is on the sisters’ web site.
