Food Drive Blitz

 The River Food Pantry had a very sucessful one-day Food Drive Blitz on Saturday, April 30th.

Volunteers were located at 5 local grocery stores handing out a list of needed items to interested shoppers. Shoppers would then purchase items and drop them off on their way out of the grocery store. 

The River collected:

1,711lbs of food and household items



Thanks to the following grocery stores for partnering with The River for the food drive blitz:
