Food Pantry Shopping List

A practical post for once, and not just my thoughts. These are the staples the OPC food pantry always needs:

  • Buttermilk biscuit mix (8 oz)
  • Cornmeal mix (8 oz)
  • Sugar (2 lb)
  • Grits (2 lb)
  • Peanut butter (18 oz)
  • Instant milk (10x1qt box)
  • Rice (2 lb)
  • Saltines (1 lb)
  • Tuna in water (6 oz)
  • Beef stew (1lb, 8oz)
  • Laundry powder (28 oz)
  • Toilet tissue (4-roll pkg)
  • Bath soap (1 bar)
  • Liquid dish soap (32 oz)
  • Pork and beans (16 oz)
  • Green beans (16 oz)
  • Whole kernel corn (16 oz)
  • Instant potatoes (13.7 oz)
  • Applesauce (25 oz)
  • Spaghetti sauce with meat (30 oz)
  • Spaghetti (16 oz)
  • Macaroni and cheese (7.25 oz)
  • Chicken noodle soup (10 oz)
  • Vegetable beef soup (10 oz)
  • Canned meat (12 oz)
The sizes are for standardization; the pantry can’t legally break up larger packages (say, a 50lb sack of rice).
