Twelfth Annual “No hungry neighbors’’ food drive

Friday, November 30, 2018

Alta Municipal Utilities and the City of Alta are sponsoring their 12th annual food drive to serve the needy people in our community. The winter season is fast approaching and it brings additional hardships with it. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of the needy. We can make sure that NO ONE in our community goes hungry during this upcoming holiday season.

The purpose of “No Hungry Neighbors” is to help feed the working poor, the unemployed, the elderly, the disabled, the people on fixed incomes, the homeless and those experiencing temporary emergencies. Our goal is to collect 3500 pounds of food this year. Donations will begiven to our local food pantry, The Lord’s Cupboard, for distribution.

Suggested food items include: canned meat, hot dogs, tuna, cereals, canned fruit, canned vegetables, packaged meals, jello, pudding, sugar, flour, juices, soups, spaghetti sauces, dry pasta, peanut butter, dish soap, laundry detergent, and paper products.

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

Each donation, no matter how large or small, will play a significant part in helping our needy neighbors. Watch for updates on the progress of the drive in reaching our goal of 3500 pounds on the local Altatec cable channel 3.
