The City of Alta and Alta Municipal Utilities are sponsoring a food drive to serve the people in the community who seek food assistance. The purpose, "No Hungry Neighbors" is to help feed the working poor, the unemployed, the elderly and disabled on fixed incomes, the homeless and those experiencing temporary emergencies. A goal has been set to collect 2,000 pounds of food. Donations will be given to Alta's local food bank, The Lord's Cupboard, for distribution.

Suggested food items include canned meat, hot dogs, tuna, cereals, canned fruit and vegetables, packaged meals, Jello, pudding, sugar, flour, juices, soups or any packaged food item.

Collection barrels are placed at city hall, 223 Main St. Office hours are from 7:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. If you wish to make arrangements for donation pick-up, please ca,ll city hall at 200-2105 or the utility office at 200-1122. Monetary donations would also be appreciated. Checks may be made to "The Lord's Cupboard" and mailed to Alta City Hall.

Each donation, no matter how large or small, will play a significant part in helping Alta's needy neighbors. Watch for updates on the progress of the drive in reaching the 2,000-pound goal on the local Altatec cable channel 3.
