Staff volunteers provided suggested items to donate and those who contributed received reusable Vermont Federal tote bags as a thank you.
This year’s food drive raised 5,130 pounds of food and $610 in cash, equating to 1,830 additional pounds of food for a total of 6,960 pounds donated. This is an increase of over 650 pounds from the previous year’s event.
