Food From the Heart 2016

April 6, 2016

  

The 8th Annual “Food from the Heart” food drive is being held this Saturday, April 9th.  Dozens of grocery stores in Richland and Lexington Counties will be taking part in the event, collecting donations for Harvest Hope Food Bank.  This local mission food drive organized and worked by over 700 volunteers from Shandon Baptist and Northside Baptist Churches.  Members position themselves on the outside of stores to offer shoppers the opportunity to take a red “Food from The Heart” grocery bag and participate by purchasing as few or as many products off a list of suggested items.  Suggested items include canned goods, rice, beans, diapers, baby food and other items.

From there, they will be taken out to local food pantries and soup kitchens.  Last year the food drive collected more than 150,000 pounds of food.
