Did you know....   February is Canned Food Month!

Canned foods are an important staple for food pantries and food banks. They are easy to store, they don’t break, they are nutritious foods, they are easy to transport and for the homeless some canned goods are a “meal in a can”. When donating to a hunger-relief charity, keep these most-needed canned food items in mind as they are always on the wish list:

• Canned Proteins    • Canned Fruits    • Canned Vegetables

Some clubs have used Super Bowl as a time to collect “soup” for their local food pantry. If you missed that opportunity, don’t worry, you still have the rest of February to celebrate National Canned Food Month by collecting canned goods for your local food pantry.

Inline image 1Peggy Yates Inducted into Buchanan County Hall of Fame

Longtime GFWC Grundy Woman's Club Member Peggy Yates was recently inducted into the Buchanan County Hall of Fame during the annual banquet of the Buchanan County Chamber of Commerce. A three-time cancer survivor and decades-long volunteer for the Relay for Life, she dedicated her life to advocacy and awareness, encouraging women to get regular breast exams and reminding the newly diagnosed to stay positive. Over the course of her life, she's been diagnosed with breast and lung cancer, as well as cancer in a stray lymph node in her shoulder. Through it all, she's been a bright light, approaching each diagnosis with a great sense of humor and the reminder of how she's been blessed. Peggy is the second consecutive Grundy Woman's Club member to be inducted.
