Food drive aims to bag more donations this year posted on 08/01/2019

Hood View Gardens’ food drive last year ended with more than 250 pounds of food and $300 in donations, benefitting Neighborhood Missions, a community outreach program sponsored by Hoodland Lutheran Church that provides food, wood and financial assistance for heating, medicine, utilities, gas vouchers and transportation for those in the community in need. And while those results were celebrated by Hood View Gardens’ co-owner Dennis Nash, he’s raised the goal to this year’s drive to 350 pounds of food.

“We had a good turnout last year,” Nash said. “We’re hoping this year our goal will be met.”

The drive will start on Thursday, Aug. 1 and run through Sunday, Aug. 18. People bring in three cans or jars of high-protein food items such as salmon, chicken, beef or turkey, peanut butter, pinto or black beans, lentils, chili, oats or quinoa to receive a 20 percent discount off their entire purchase, or three items of pasta, canned corn, green beans, peas, canned fruit, rice, toiletry items or a package of individual snack items for kids and receive a discount of 10 percent off their purchase at Hood View Gardens.

All items must be in new and unopened containers, while cans need to be free of dents and cannot be expired or near expiration date. This year, the store will allow customers who bring in food donations to combine other discounts with their donation discount.

Neighborhood Missions covers an area approximately from Alder Creek to Government Camp. The food pantry is stocked with donated food that is available to anyone in need.

Hood View Gardens is located at 46870 Hwy. 26 in Sandy. Business hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Tuesdays through Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays (closed Mondays). For more information visit Hoodviewgardensllc.com or search for “Hood View Gardens” on Facebook.
