Rice is a nutritious and economical option in many diets, and a staple in the MUM food pantry. In 2016 an idea was born to help our neighbors in need by challenging ourselves to fill 25 lb buckets with pre-packaged rice bags, in order to supply MUM with a years worth of rice. Our goal is to collect 8,000 lbs of rice (valued at $10,000) - to help the 300+ individuals and families who rely on them for food support, monthly.
We welcome your support online with these suggested donation amounts:
1) $15 (half-bucket)
2) $30 (one bucket)
3) $100 (3+ buckets)
Every day, MUM helps families and individuals deal with evictions, utility cutoffs and the cost of prescription medicines. MUM also operates a food pantry that in FY 2015 distributed 81,832 lbs. of nonperishable groceries to its clients. Learn more: http://mumhelp.org/
