Food drive for area food bank at S. Deerfield church
SOUTH DEERFIELD — In an effort to help school children access food during the summertime, the Holy Family Church in South Deerfield is holding a benefit for the Food Bank of Western Mass.
The benefit helps kids who receive breakfast and lunch through the school during the school year access food during the summer.
The church plans to fill a 10-by-12-foot van with nonperishable food. The collection will be Saturday and Sunday and Aug. 2 and 3 from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 7 a.m. to noon on Sundays.
The van is being donated by Orchard RV in Whately.
The church address is 29 Sugarloaf St. in South Deerfield.
