GREELEY, Colo. — The Weld Food Bank is asking for donations of non-perishable food to help with flood relief efforts.

“Summer is a particularly slow time of the year for food donations and as a result their current supply of canned goods will not be sufficient to assist all of those in need,” said spokeswoman Stephanie Gausch.

Volunteers will be at King Soopers stores in Greeley, Windsor, and Firestone as well as the Greeley Sam’s Club and Walmart stores in Greeley and Longmont.

They will be collecting the food bank’s top 10 most wanted food items on Wednesday Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

King Soopers will be matching all of the food that community members donate, Gausch said.

The food bank will also have donation barrels located at every grocery store in Greeley over the weeks to come.

The Top Ten Most Wanted Food List includes:
— Canned Meat or Tuna
— Canned Soup or Stews
— Pasta or Mac & Cheese
— Cereal
— Rice
— Canned Fruit
— Canned Vegetables
— Peanut Butter & Jelly
— Fruit Juice
— Infant Formula (preferably Enfamil Premium Infant)
— If possible the food bank would appreciate food donations by the case/flat so the food items do not have to be sorted
