Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program

An all volunteer members of the Mayors’ Feed the Hungry Program Committee, took on the task of contacting area schools, businesses and civic organizations to participate in our annual holiday food drive. Over sixty-five schools — from elementary to college, public and private — as well as an assortment of area organizations, businesses and government offices are participating this year. “With hundreds of school students participating, area teachers use the food drive as a real-life community service lesson teaching students the value of sharing with those who are less fortunate,”. Last year your generosity provided over 12,000 meals – over 35% went to children, over 16% went to the handicapped and over 15% went to the elderly – however more than 40,000 requests were left unfilled!
