Suggested food items include canned meats, vegetables and fruit; as well as sturdy bags or boxes of rice, pasta, dried beans, sugar, flour, coffee and grits. Plastic jars of peanut butter, jellies and other condiments are appreciated. Glass jars will not be accepted.

Contributions help families in our community who need a little extra help during the holiday season. This year’s drive is especially important as there are many families in our community who are still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Florence.

This is the 26th year the County has conducted the Holiday Food Drive. Last year 2,680 pounds of goods were donated. For more information, call 910-321-7108.
