The Moore County Food Pantry is gearing up for a food drive, and they’re adding four collection sites to make it easy for people to donate.

The Moore County Commissioners Court gave the Food Pantry permission Tuesday to add the courthouse and the Dumas, Cactus and Sunray libraries to the list of collection sites. John Haltom, Food Pantry coordinator, told the commissioners the organization delivers food to 70 to 85 families a month, and he’s hoping people will donate some of the items the Food Pantry has to buy.

“We often have to buy peanut butter, and paper products are usually hard to get,” Haltom said. “We’re also talking to the library so that a person’s book fines can be relieved if someone brings in food.”

These are the items the pantry is in need of, Haltom said.

  • 2-pound sacks of flour
  • 2-pound sacks of sugar
  • Toilet paper
  • Jelly
  • Instant milk
  • Beef stew
  • Canned fruit (all types)
  • Macaroni & Cheese
  • Paper towels
  • Peanut butter
  • Sacks of cereal
  • Chili
  • Tuna
  • Jell-O

You can take your donations to the courthouse or the Dumas, Sunray and Cactus libraries.
