Paladin’s Pantry at BMDL Twelfthnight

Paladin's Pantry, we put the "large" in "largesse"

The Paladin’s Pantry program is a drive that collects excess food, drink, blankets, and camping supplies at SCA events, and conveys them to local food banks to benefit those in need. We put the “large” is “largesse”!

Greetings to the Barony-Marche of the Debatable Lands!

At BMDL 12th night (January 13th) the Paladin’s Pantry project will be collecting for the Pittsburgh Food Bank.

These items are super easy to buy, you can usually find them at your local Aldi or Goodwill. Imagine yourself homeless in this cold bitter weather or among the 15% of Allegheny County residents who are food insecure and think of how a small act of kindness could make your life better.

Please bring an item or two!

We are collecting:
Food Items
Clean used blankets, gloves, mittens, and/or coats
Feminine Hygiene Products

The Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank lists these as their most needed items:

  • Cereal (Low in sugar, high in fiber)
  • Tuna or Salmon (Packed in water)
  • Canned fruit (Packed in 100% juice or water)
  • Canned beans (Black, garbanzo, etc.)
  • Peanut Butter
  • Hand soap and other toiletries
  • Toilet/facial tissue
  • Laundry detergent
  • Diapers (Infant and adult)
  • Canned vegetables (No or low sodium)

There will be a table at BMDL Twelfthnight for your donations, just look for the Paladin’s Pantry signage. If you need additional information, please contact Lady Alethea Cowle at lake.strobel(at)gmail(dot)com.
