"All of the food collected stays in the local communities", Blackledge said. With the economic struggles many Americans face, this food drive is as critical as ever. Food trucks and jumpers will be available. Letter carriers will pick up the donated items when they make their regular deliveries in the area. "During the summer, utility bills skyrocket and children, who usually receive meals at school, may not have enough to eat".
