Wonderful Food Drive Bounty

posted Nov 8, 2015, 9:13 AM by MESA Corresponding Secretary

We are so grateful to everyone who contributed food to this year’s fall food drive to benefit Our Daily Bread, Mansfield’s food pantry.  Over 2,500 pounds of food was collected this year from both schools, including many popular products that are not easily procured from other sources.  This year’s total was higher than last year’s by about 400 pounds (before including the food collected at Halloween Bingo).  Please see other totals below.  The food pantry and the Mansfield residents who rely on it appreciate your generosity and we are also thankful for the many volunteers - parents, kids and National Honors HS students who helped sort, pack and transport all that food.  A special shout out to our project chair Tammy Loftus and food pantry volunteer Maria Smith.  Thank you!
