Throw together a few of the childhood staple - peanut butter & jelly - and spread some love to neighbors who are hungry. This quick and easy task can mean nutrition for someone who might otherwise go without lunch today. Simple ingredients and a simple gesture of kindness can mean a whole lot more to the person who gets to enjoy your efforts on the other side.

For someone who might otherwise not have all the food they need, the gift of a simple sandwich can provide both necessary nutrients and also a dose of comfort.

1. Send a quick email to Barbara on the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry volunteer team at email@example.com to discuss the date you would like to drop off sandwiches (to make sure they anticipate needing them that day). Please note that sandwiches can only be dropped off on Mondays and Fridays between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m.
2. Decide how many sandwiches you want to make and grab the necessary ingredients on your next trip to the store. (The minimum requested amount is 25.)
3. Make your sandwiches the night before you plan to drop them off (or that morning if you are an early riser). Be sure to have a grown-up oversee all the parts that require use of a knife!
4. Drop off your sandwiches at:
North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry
Pantry is to the rear of the church, through the parking lot, off of Troost Ave. which is one block east of Colfax.
