Community Food Drive this Saturday!

For all you locals out there, join my church, Eastpoint, for a Community Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank of Delaware. Close to 242,000 Delawareans turn to emergency food assistance each year. With that in mind,  Starbucks in People’s Station (2470 Pulaski Hwy, Newark, DE 19702) kindly agreed to host the event with us. The Starbucks and Eastpoint staffs are gearing up for a big turnout. You can bring your non-perishable food donation directly to the main drop off location at Starbucks (you can even drive up–don’t even have to get out of your car!) or to any of these participating stores in People’s Plaza:

Safeway

McGlynn’s Pub

Town Hair Salon

Papa John’s Pizza

First State Garden Center

British Bell Tea Room

Home Budget Center

Hibachi Grill

La Piazza Di Caruso

Cold Stone Creamery

Applebee’s

If you have time to hang out for a bit, please do. Greg, my CSA buddy, and the band will be playing some music for us, and Valerie, gardener and artist extraordinaire, will be face painting clever designs and little works of art on anyone and everyone. If you need more info, please comment below.

Oh, and if anyone wants to donate fresh from the garden produce, I’ll be on hand to collect it. Any readers out there plant extra garden rows for their local food bank?

See you Saturday!
