Call it ignorance of the problem, call it lethargy, call it the economy, but all three major food pantries in Burke County NC are low or out of food to feed our neighbors in need. Understanding this, the Morganton Main Street Office is sponsoring a Food Drive during the Halloween Spooktacular and Trick or Treating event on Monday, October 31, 2011.
There is a food donation truck parked on S. Green Street in downtown Morganton, beside Courthouse Square and across from Marquee Cinemas. Residents will be able to drive up, drop off donations, and drive on.
Rising to the challenge, individual REALTORs of Real Living Carolina Property's downtown Morganton and Lake James offices will be bringing canned goods into their office at 121 E. Union Street - and the company will match each donated item, doubling the contribution! They will also be staffing the food donation truck from 3 - 5 pm.
The following non-perishable food items are needed:
• baked beans
• chick peas
• great northern beans
• lima beans
• mandarin oranges
• mixed fruit
• navy beans
• pinto beans
• pork n beans
• Dried beans and/or rice
Spooktacular and a Food Drive? What a great way to celebrate Halloween!
