The Cleaning Authority Cares - Summer Food Drive
How can you help?
During one of your next cleans, our employees will be leaving behind a The Cleaning Authority CARES grocery bag. Please fill this with the food you'd like to donate and leave it somewhere visible at the time of your next clean. Cleaners will pick up the bag of food from your home and take it back to our office.
We’re partnering with Second Harvest Heartland to help feed children, working adults who are in lower-wage jobs and seniors living on fixed incomes. The organization delivers donated food to nearly 1,000 food shelves, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, senior community centers and other meal programs in 59 counties across Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
For our first collection we are focusing on kid-friendly foods that require little to no prep. Summer is known as the hungriest time of year for kids because many who are in food programs at school are no longer provided breakfast and lunch when the school year ends. Here are some ideas on non-perishable food items you can place in the bag:
✓ Pop-Top Tuna
✓ Canned Vegetables
✓ Canned Fruit, Fruit Cups, or Dried Fruit
✓ Low-Sugar Cereal
✓ Peanut Butter
✓ Sliced Bread, Tortillas, or Crackers
✓ Baby Formula and Food
✓ Snack Items
✓ Granola Bars
✓ Juice Boxes
✓ Biscuit or Baking Mixes that only Require Water
✓ Pasta & Pasta Sauce
✓ Other Non-Perishable Food
