Women’s Network seeks donations for Bayview Emergency Food Closet

The Johns Hopkins Women’s Network’s 2009 Food Drive to benefit the Bayview Emergency Food Closet began on Nov. 16 and continues through Wednesday, Dec. 16.

The primary source of support for the program—which provides a three-day supply of food to persons in need—is through this annual drive at Bayview, where contributions of food and funds provide about three tons of food.

Among the items needed are canned meat/ham/chicken, peanut butter, canned nuts and seeds, canned soups and vegetables, sauces and salad dressings, breakfast cereals, pasta, muffin mix, evaporated and powdered milk, puddings and infant formula.

Drop boxes are located on the Homewood, East Baltimore, Bayview and Mount Washington campuses and in Fells Point.
