The bi-annual food drive, hosted by the Cumberland Y’s Service Club and the Amherst Y’s Mennettes, is always one of the biggest events on the Amherst Food Bank’s calendar.
Volunteers will be going door-to-door Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon collecting food items.
If you’re not home you can leave your food bag on the front step.
The fall food drive helps stock food bank shelves for the school season and for the coming winter.
Non-perishable food items needed include: peanut butter, canned meats and tuna, canned fruit, cereal, rice, pasta, pasta sauce, juice, soups, sidekicks, children’s lunch snacks and puddings.
There is also a need for toiletries and cleaning supplies.
