The Interfaith Community Services (ICS) is running its annual Fall Food Drive until Tuesday, Oct. 31, encouraging the community to donate food at various locations, including Pima County Public Library branches, Town of Oro Valley buildings and Edward Jones Financial Advisor offices.

This drive, which supports the Northwest and Mobile Food Banks, seeks to provide both pantry staples and seasonal items for the holiday season.

When money is tight, people can be faced with a choice between buying groceries, paying a utility bill, or filling the gas tank to get to work. The holiday season puts additional strain on budgets already at the breaking point. A food allotment from our food banks helps stretch the money to meet more household needs. And a holiday food box supports the traditions that strengthen and unify families the building blocks of strong communities.

Donations can be dropped off at available locations, and monetary contributions are accepted on their website.
