Donate two cans to end hunger in your community

ACHS will accept local canned-food donations on behalf of the Oregon Food Bank from December 8-15.

Bring two cans to the Apothecary Shoppe between the hours of 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. If you cannot make it into the Apothecary Shoppe before December 15—or you live outside the Portland metro area—donate to your local food bank.

Food banks always have a short supply during the holidays. This year has proved no exception. As a country, we are experiencing some of the most difficult financial struggles in decades. And as a result, food shortages are at an all time high.

We may not be able to end national hunger single-handed. But, we can end hunger at home. It’s amazingly easy. In fact, for many of us, all it would take is a one-minute trip to the kitchen cabinet—or a few cans of food.

You do great work. We know this about you, the same as we know promoting community wellness is an important part of our work as holistic health educators. Support community wellness this holiday season.

Donate two cans to stop hunger in your community. Then, tell us all about it. Don't worry. It's not self-promotion. It's education. So come on...brag a little!

What are you and your community doing to end hunger locally?
