DOWNLOADABLE FLYER: GEF Food Kits

Pantry Pack includes: 1 gallon zip lock bag, 2 individual size microwaveable meals (Easy Mac, Ravioli, Spaghetti & Meatballs), 1 fruit cup/squeeze pouch or applesauce, 1 shelf stable pudding cup, 2 juice boxes or pouches, 2 instant oatmeal, 1 individual sized peanut butter crackers or cheese crackers, 2 granola bars (no peanuts), and an optional child friendly card. *PLEASE TAKE THESE KITS DIRECTLY TO THE GRANITE EDUCATION FOUNDATION (instead of the Serve Refugees Sharehouse). Call to schedule a drop off between Monday- Thursday 9 am to 4 pm 385-646-4483.

A Snack pack is given to hungry students by teachers, administrators and social workers. Snack packs are always in high demand and usually include a granola bar or crackers, a juice box or pouch and another small snack; such as fruit snacks that are packaged in to a zip lock bag.

Spaghetti sauce (with meat), spaghetti noodles, canned veggie/fruit and a desert mix. Two Knorr side dish packets, canned chicken, canned fruit and a desert mix. 2 large cans of chili, a packet of corn bread and a desert mix.

Many of the families we serve are not familiar with canned food items. GEF endeavors to provide items that these families are accustomed to such as flour, rice and dry beans. These items can be packaged together in a standard plastic grocery bag and are ready to hand to families in need. A Basics Bag includes a 2 pound bag of flour, 1 pound bag of dry beans and 1 pound bag of rice. These essentials are in high demand and are difficult for the Foundation to keep in supply.
