What You Need To Know Before You Go
Bring your healthy, non-perishable food donations (or money to donate). Every year food donations are accepted for the many families that need that bit of extra help in the community. Food that are suggested include:
- Grain Products – whole grain bread, brown rice, whole wheat crackers, hot and cold cereals, granola bars, muffins
- Vegetables and Fruit – canned fruit and vegetables, 100% fruit juice, tomato sauce, canned soup, tomato juice, and applesauce
- Milk Products – dry milk powder, milk puddings, cheese spreads, fresh milk, yogurt, and cheese (if accepted)
- Meat and Alternatives – canned meat and fish, peanut butter, canned baked beans, dried or canned beans and lentils
- Reduced sodium canned and jarred goods are preferred
Dress for the weather in layers! While there are several bonfires around to help keep you warm and hot chocolate is also served, dressing in your warmest winter wear is highly suggested because it can get super cold. If you do get too warm being able to peel off the layers is better because you can always put it back on.
Get there early. Parking can be horrendous and fills up quick. Not only that but if you need to make a quick stop to warm up it’s close by.
