The Kiwanis Club of Middletown held a food drive on Saturday October 7th and Sunday October 8th at the Middletown Stop and Shop.
Several club members helped solicit non-perishable food items for Amazing Grace Food Pantry. Thanks to the generosity of the Stop & Shop customers, the club was able to donate over 1,000 items, weighing in at 1002 pounds of food. The Kiwanis food drive raised roughly enough food for over 1400 meals.
Did you know: a $1 donation becomes 4 meals? That’s 5 pounds of food!
This was our first food drive but we plan on doing several throughout the year. Our next food drive is scheduled for Superbowl weekend at Stop and Shop in Middletown...
