A Food Drive for West Virginia Teachers

The Philadelphia Industrial Workers of the World is collecting non-perishable food items to donate to striking teachers in West Virginia. We will be driving the collected food to fellow workers next week.

If you want to contribute to the food drive, you can leave non-perishable food items in the food drive box at Wooden Shoe Books on south street.

Are you not sure what to donate? Here are some ideas:

1. Canned beans

2. Peanut butter

3. Canned fruit in fruit juice (not syrup)

4. Canned vegetables,

5. Rice

6. Quinoa

7. Nuts

8. Shelf-stable milk

9. Whole grain pasta

10. Pasta sauce

11. Cereal

12. Dried fruits

If the strike ends before we can deliver the food, we will be donating the food to the Cedar Haven Nursing Home strikers.
