Well, Food Bank friends, it’s official. The holiday season is upon us. With the holidays comes the annual holiday food drive season. We are so thankful for the fact that so many businesses and organizations think of our neighbors in need during this season and come together to help raise food and funds to make this work possible. We also love to see the fantastic ways they come up with to thank YOU for donating to their drives. Check out these great offers from some of this year’s food drive hosts, and be sure to check back from time to time for updates.
