Successful Longmeadow Food Drive

LongmeadowBiz and LCTV want to thank all of the people who stopped by the Longmeadow Big Y parking lot this past rainy Saturday to drop off their food donation for the Longmeadow Food Pantry. You can be assured that the Longmeadow Adult Center will make sure that this food is given to needy individuals and families in our community.

On tonight's NBC Nightly News, it was reported that 17 million households or 14% of the people in the United States now have difficulty putting food on their table sometime during the year. Below is the video clip with this news story...

If you missed the opportunity on Saturday to donate but still want to do so.... contributions are accepted at the Longmeadow Adult Center, 231 Maple Road on Monday - Friday from 9 am - 3 pm.
