Hunger Hurts for Vista is in motion with a BIG food drive right now. Drop locations are Kings Stationer (631 S. Melrose, by Courthouse) and Sport About ( 1310 E. Vista Way). They are trying to put a food pantry at 10 schools (middle & high schools) in Vista for local teens in need- there are so many that are homeless and hungry, something that does not meet the everyday eye. If you are looking for a service opportunity in your community, they are also looking for people to adopt a school and be responsible for picking up preboxed items and fill and refill the pantry as needed. Types of food they are looking for: Peanut butter, canned soups, chilis, cans of stew, canned fruit, water-canned chicken and meats, ramens, granola bars, snack packs, saltine crackers, jerkys and beef sticks, manwich, boxes of mac and cheese, bread, and assorted hygiene items. P.O. box 2761, Vista 92085 or call 442-222-9024. You can also email local contact Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The organizations that adopted Rancho Buena Vista High School and Madison Middle School in Vista's food pantries will be outside of the Shadowridge Albertson's on S. Melrose Drive (11-3) and Ralph's at the corner of Cannon and Melrose (11-2) on Saturday, October 27th collecting food for those specific pantries if you would like to contribute.
