1224 food bags

St. Petersburg Elks Lodge #1224 partnered with the lodge members, The Kind Mouse and Walgreens to collect enough food to make up 325 bags for local families in need and nine veterans’ homes, of which there were four veterans in each of the homes. Each bag contained a ham, yams, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, sweet potatoes, stuffing, rice, cranberry sauce, cornbread mix, macaroni and cheese, pie-filling mix, pudding and milk, enough to feed a household of six. The food totaled 4,642 pounds and had a value of more than $9,950. Helping to put together all this food for distribution Dec. 17 were Scout Troop 209, 26 lodge members and eight members of The Kind Mouse. The Northside Baptist Church food pantry assisted with delivery.
