Annual Community Food Drives
The U.S. Post Office Letter Carriers holds an annual food drive. Food is collected at area homes by Palm Harbor postal employees, and taken to Curlew United Methodist Church where over 100 volunteers sort the food for storage and, finally, for distribution to the needy. The generosity of Palm Harbor residents results in over 30 tons of food for FEAST. These are some pictures of the 2013 event.
Curlew United Methodist Chuch is our wonderful event host.
Our volunteers begin preparing for the arrival of the donated food.
The volunteers receive donated food, picked up and delivered by the Palm Harbor Post Office and postal workers.
Volunteers sort food, creating containers of vegetables. fruits, canned pasta, tomato products. baked beans, peanut butter, soup, dry pasta, cereals. sauces, canned meats, etc. to be stored for distribution.
Sorted food is stored in our warehouse, that is provided by Curlew United Methodist Church.
Our Director, Walt Andersen, and all our volunteers thank you for your generosity and willingness to help FEAST serve food to 3600 people each month. FEAST gets no government grant money. It is truly a neighbor-to-neighbor effort of people helping one another.
We could not supply needy families with food twice a month if it weren't for our volunteers, the Palm Harbor community, our churches, and business partners. Thanks to each of you for your unselfish support to our neighbors needing help.
We want to thank these partners who helped make this year's drive so successful:
Curlew United Methodist Church
United States Post Office-Palm Harbor
Boars Head Meats
