Mayor Bob Foster, Food Finders, Friends of Long Beach Animals and We Love Long Beach are organizing the annual Long Beach Community Food Drive for the fourth consecutive year. Barrels will be placed in several locations throughout the city to collect canned or packaged food and pet food to help out needy families and pets in Long Beach. Donations will be accepted starting Nov. 1 until Dec. 31, 2011.
“For the past four years, this annual food drive has collected enough food to feed thousands of Long Beach neighbors in need,” said Mayor Foster. “I know that Long Beach residents and businesses will again donate generously to help those less fortunate.”
Food Finders will collect from several drop-off locations and then distribute the donated food to more than 100 organizations in Long Beach.
