Food drives organized by businesses, schools, associations, churches and other groups are critically important as we work to keep our shelves packed with nutritious food for the hungry. This is especially true during the summer months. All food collected during these drives will help to feed the hungry right here in our area. We can help make your food drive easy and fun.
