Cost of food, fuel takes toll on Treasure Box program

Last food delivery set for September

September will be the last month that Treasure Box foods will be available, Martha Johnston at Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church learned recently.

Treasure Box had been delivering boxes of food for $32 per box, with each box containing a variety of food that would feed a family of four for one week and individuals for much longer. The program’s termination is due to the rising cost of food and fuel, which has made it impossible to provide the treasure boxes at an affordable price.

The food pickup scheduled at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church at 537 E St. on Saturday, Aug. 27, will take place from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Those wishing to place a final order for September will need to do so online at no later than Sept. 1. The total cost per box for September orders will be $33.75, which includes an online transaction fee of $1.75.

Anyone who wishes to order for September but who does not have Internet access may contact Johnston at 760-789-4015.

The September food pickup will be at Immaculate Heart of Mary church from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24.
