Time to Restock

Canned Fruit


We know, we know... Canned fruit? Typical food pantry, huh. But canned fruit can give our clients so much more than a simple side dish!
Ever heard of a "Canned Fruit Frappe"?! Well we have, and we thought it looked delicious! Made with just canned peaches, lemonade and yogurt we thought this would be the perfect treat for our clients to finish off the summer with. For a pear-fectly sweet frappe try it with canned pears and apple juice, instead! And then who could resist one grapefruit flavored?


Still not convinced? 


How about a little Pistachio Fruit Salad to whet your palette? Made with a delectable mix of canned fruits, including pineapple, fruit cocktail and mandarin oranges, this dish is the epitome of fine canned cuisine. Top it off with pistachio pudding and whipped topping and this is one green dish even the little ones won't be able to turn down!


But Our Community Food Pantry is running low on all kinds of canned fruit! Help us provide our clients with this essential and give them so much more than a simple pantry staple.
