Manatee County food bank in dire need of donations

July 24, 2013 

Manatee County's food bank needs your help. The shelves are critically low.

For every dollar you donate, six pounds of food can be bought.

If you can search your shelves for any nonperishable food, baby food or formula to help, please drop by one of the many food bank barrels located throughout the county or come to Renaissance on 9th at 1816 Ninth St. W., Bradenton.

Please feel free to call Cindy Sloan at the food bank, 941-747-9871. Cindy does accept dog/cat food for the elderly with pets, for delivery when Meals on Wheels takes food to our elderly population.

Summer is here and our less fortunate need our help.
