Posted by on Jul 26, 2012 in ,

I’m sure we all have extra food in our cabinets that we could do without. Now is the perfect time to clean out your cabinets or add extra items to your shopping list because this Friday July 27, Springfield will be holding a food drive. Western Massachusetts food pantries are in great need of food donations for those who are less fortunate than us. ABC40 and The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts are teaming up to collect non-perishable items on Friday. Below is a list of the most-needed food items.

  • Peanut butter and Jelly
  • Rice and canned or dry beans
  • Spaghetti and canned spaghetti sauce
  • Canned or boxed pasta/rice meals and canned vegetables
  • Canned or instant soups/stews
  • Dry oatmeal
  • Canned fruit

The drop off box will be at the ABC40/FOX 6 studios on 1300 Liberty Street in Springfield MA between the hours of 5:00 am-7:00 pm.
