Food Share Drive jump starts summer food pantry donations

Food Share Drive jump starts summer food pantry donations

WAFF 48 is proud to partner with Bank Independent for their 5th annual Food Share drive.

Food Share is an initiative to give back to those in need by helping to jump-start food collection to help local food banks stock their pantries for the summer.

Bank Independent has a huge part in helping others in our community, with other events throughout the year such as Toy Share and Shelter Share.

Food Share is going on now through May 11. You can help by dropping off non-perishable food items for local organizations by stopping by any Bank Independent location. Donations are also accepted at local grocery stores including Walmart in Florence, Foodland in Russellville, Walmart in Decatur, Foodland in Moulton, Walmart in Athens, and Star Market in Huntsville.

Examples of items needed include peanut butter, canned vegetables, soups, apple sauce, granola bars, cereal, canned meats, instant potatoes, saltine crackers and cooking oil.

If you don't have time to stop by one of North Alabama's Bank Independent locations, monetary donations are accepted online.

Every donation is appreciated!
