In its eighth year of helping others in the community, Greater Valley Forge Transportation Management Assoc. (GVF), and its partners have kicked off their annual food drive to fight area hunger. The food drive, in which packaged, non-perishable food items for those in need are collected, runs until Dec. 17. Since its inception, the annual event has collected more than 7,500 pounds of food.
Items collected will be donated to Philabundance, a non-profit that provides nearly 90,000 people in the region with food each week, in an effort to end hunger across Pennsylvania and New Jersey communities, writes Donna Rovins in The Times Herald.
Items that can be donated through Dec. 17 include: Canned goods, jarred proteins (peanut butter, almond butter, etc.), jelly, jams or preserves, pasta, rice and dry mixes, breakfast foods (hot or cold cereal, bars, oatmeal, etc.).
Food item donations can be dropped off at the following locations through Dec. 17:
