UKRFCU Invites You to “Beet Hunger”

UKRFCU is partnering with Philabundance to take a stand in a fight against hunger by hosting a food drive. Please visit any of our four participating locations, Feasterville branch, Somerton branch, Cottman branch or UECC branch, and look for a “Beet Hunger” bin to make your donation.

In an effort to provide the most nutritious food, the list below represents high food priorities. These items are high in both demand and nutritional value. While we continue to accept other items, we kindly ask you to focus your effort on these items so, together, we have the maximum impact for individuals facing hunger.

Below is a list of some of the best foods to donate:

  • Peanut butter & jelly
  • Canned tuna or meat
  • 100% juice
  • Canned stew & soups
  • Boxed, non-refrigerated milk
  • Canned fruits & vegetables
  • Pasta sauce & canned vegetables
  • Whole grain/wheat pasta
  • Nuts/ trail mix/ granola bars
  • Oatmeal/ breakfast cereal
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Pancake mix/ syrup

Please donate products that are in boxes, cans, or plastic bottles and do not require refrigeration. Additionally, please note we prefer items that are low in sugar/sodium and free of high fructose corn syrup. Please do not donate bread or items that have a short shelf life. All items should be recently purchased and in good condition.
