Drive-thru and drop off non-perishable food items at WTVM

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - As part of our annual Share Your Thanks By Giving campaign, WTVM hosted a drive-through drop off food drive to benefit Feeding the Valley Food Bank and the community came out in droves!

According to Frank Shepard, CEO of Feeding the Valley, the one-day drop off event collected 2,567 pounds of canned foods and non-perishable food items.

Some items that can be donated include:

  • Canned vegetables (beans, peas, carrots, etc.)
  • Canned soups
  • Dried beans
  • Canned meats
  • Flour
  • Rice
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta
