Help people in crisis
DenUM strives to provide food options that are nutritionally balanced, safe and that promote healthy eating. Therefore, we do not distribute expired food. Instead we encourage food donations that include whole grains, low-sodium and low-sugar options.
Whole grain cereals
Fruit in water or juice
Meat canned in water, when possible
Vegetables, low or no sodium
Beans: dry or canned in low or no sodium
Whole wheat pasta, rice or other whole grains
Powdered or shelf stable milk
100% fruit juice
Mac & cheese or other boxed meals
Whole grain breads
There will be bins set up at the gym from 11/5 through 11/22 to collect food for those who are in need. As an added bonus, for every pound collected, that will count as a burpee for the coaches to do at the end of the food drive. So while they make you suffer through burpee’s in class here is your chance for a little pay back while at the same time supporting a good cause and great organization. If you have any questions at all please contact Crawford.
