FOOD DRIVE – Our Community CAN Food Drive – It can be a tough choice: rent or food? While many of us never have to consider this question, more than 130,000 households in our region are faced with this difficult decision. When you support the Our Community CAN food drive on Saturday, August 12, you will help put a meal on a table. Fill a bag of nonperishable food for Harvesters that day and you’ll take a hard decision off someone’s plate. You can drop-off your donations Monday thru Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, at West Side Baptist Church, 1008 SW 4th St, Topeka, KS 66606. All food collected will be donated to Harvesters Food Network, 215 SE Quincy Topeka, KS 66603. https://www.harvesters.org/
