Morning show anniversary food drive benefits local food pantry

More than 1,900 pounds of food donated Friday morning

Our community is once again showing its generosity when it comes to helping those in need.

News 8 hosted a food drive for the Hunger Task Force Friday morning as part of the 15th anniversary celebration for Jennifer Livingston and Bill Graul on the morning show.

The drive lasted from 6 until 10 in the morning with people driving through the north end of Riverside Park to drop off canned goods and other non-perishable items. More than 1,900 pounds of food was donated, along with $500 in monetary donations.

The executive director of the Hunger Task Force says it will go a long ways in helping people right here in our community.
