Food drive helps needy on May 10

The National Association of Letter Carriers and Boy Scouts of America Food Drive will be on May 10.
They will be collecting your donated canned, boxed and dry goods. Just bag or box your donated items and place them by your mailbox on the morning of May 10.
Our supermarkets often have case lot sales. Cases would be so helpful in filling up our nearly empty pantry. If you miss the Food Drive you may leave donated items year-round anytime during opening hours at the Aquatic Center and Los Alamos County Social Services at 1505 15th Street.
LA Cares is Los Alamos’ Food Pantry serving eligible individuals and families in the County. We serve approximately 85 families a month with our food box distribution on the second Friday of the month and the preceding Thursday night. Qualified individuals and families must call 661-8015 by the Sunday before the distribution in order to receive a box.
LA Cares is not just a food pantry, but an assistance program also. We served 108 families with rent and utilities in 2013.
