The Sugar Land Lions Club is asking the community to bring non-perishable food items to the Farmers Market at Imperial on Saturday, December 7 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. as part of the organization’s “Relieving the Hunger” campaign.
Items collected by Boy Scout Troop 148 will benefit families in need in Sugar Land and the surrounding communities.
Some of the most-needed items include canned meats, canned stews, peanut better, dried beans, canned fruits, canned vegetables, soups, cereals, pasta, spaghetti, macaroni and noodles. Open packages and homemade food items cannot be accepted.
“Organizing this project gives us a chance to help families in our community who don’t have enough to eat or can’t afford to buy nutritious food,” said Ella Aubin, president of the Sugar Land Lions Club. “We’re trying to build a stronger, healthier community.”
Presented by the Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce, the Farmers Market at Imperial is held every Saturday, rain or shine, at Imperial Sugar Land, 198 Kempner Street and Highway 90.
