Food pantry needs Spam
Special Spam bulletin: Canned meats, including Spam and canned Armour pork, on sale at Save-A-Lot (sp?) grocery store on East Washington Avenue in the old Jo-Ann Fabrics building (on the right side of East Wash as one is heading away from the Capitol, toward the interstate). As of Tuesday, Jan. 21, the Armour product is less expensive than Spam, at $1.49 for a 12-ounce can, reports our intrepid shopper Claire, who picked up a case of the stuff. She adds that both the Armour and the Spam are 100 percent pork and that most of the calories include fat.
Hotdish Hoedown guests are asked to bring contributions of Spam for the Atwood Community Center food pantry. Food pantry customers often request Spam, but not enough is donated to meet demand.
Food pantry "customers love Spam, and we never have much of it," says assistant center director and Hoedown guest Lisa Jacob, who came up with the idea.
Special prizes will be given for the most containers of Spam and the most Spam by weight that is donated.
Spam: It ain't just about e-mail.
