Land O’ Lakes, FL – (April 27, 2020) – Pasco County leaders are joining together to support a curbside food drive over two consecutive Saturdays to benefit needy families in Pasco County.
The first food drive will take place on Saturday, May 2, at 16400 SR 54 E. at the southwest corner of SR 54 and the Veterans Expressway, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. The second food drive site will be on May 9 at Sam’s Club of Wesley Chapel at 27727 SR 56, also from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The goal of the curbside food drive is to collect non-perishable items – make-a-meal items such as canned goods, rice, pasta, and instant potatoes; as well as healthy snacks such as peanut butter, jelly, crackers, cereal, and granola bars. Volunteers at the collection sites will be practicing social distancing. Members of the public will be encouraged to place donated items in a box or bag, and place it in their trunk. When they arrive at the donation site, they will be directed to pop open your trunk and volunteers will do the rest.
The food drive also will accept monetary donations through the Pasco Education Foundation at www.PascoEducationFoundation.org. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to feed needy families in Pasco County.
Checks can be made payable to:
Pasco Education Foundation
P.O. Box 1248
Land O’ Lakes, FL 34639
