A Nation "Stuffs the Truck" with Food for the Hungry

A Santa Fe, NM food drive.
Food drives to feed the hungry have ramped up across the United States. Just search the internet for "holiday food drives" and it looks like every community is hosting creative ways to bring in staples to share.

 For instance, the Arizona Daily Star's report from yesterday begins: 
Local Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and Campfire Girls, as well as the town of Oro Valley and the Sun City Vistoso Cyclists, have already begun collecting food for what has become the largest annual food drive for the Interfaith Community Services Food Bank, 2820 W. Ina Road.

The rest of the Tucson community can join in, too.

The Seventh Annual Edward Jones Bag-a-Thon culminates in a public breakfast and community food collection day from 8 a.m. to noon Nov. 9 at the Edward Jones offices at West Lambert Lane and North La Canada Drive, with breakfast provided by Caffe Torino and Eegee’s.
