The Town of Wake Forest is partnering with radio station 96.1 BBB and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina to sponsor two food drives on Saturday, Nov. 18.
The morning food drive will take place along Taylor Street in the Wake Forest Town Hall employee parking lot from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Scheduled to partially coincide with the Police Department Turkey Drive Drop-Off, which is set from 9 a.m. to noon at the Police Department Main Station, 225 S. Taylor St., the food drive will allow area residents to drop off their frozen turkeys and non-perishable food items at the same time in the same general area.
The afternoon food drive is scheduled from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Flaherty Park Community Center, 1226 N. White St.
A variety of non-perishable foods are needed, including canned meats (tuna, chicken), canned beans, soup fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, jelly, whole grain pasta and rice, and cereal. Please note: no glass containers can be accepted.
The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina is a nonprofit organization that has provided food for people at risk of hunger in 34 counties for over 35 years. The Food Bank serves a network of more than 800 partner agencies such as soup kitchens, food pantries, shelters, and programs for children and adults through distribution centers in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, the Sandhills (Southern Pines) and Wilmington.
