A food drive drew scores of vehicles to the corner of Siskron and Russell Streets in Darlington today as Harvest Hope Food Bank teamed with the City of Darlington to distribute 600 boxes of fresh fruit, vegetables, snacks, and other food items.
“Fruits and vegetables are something people really need in their diet and they may not be able to get as much as they need right now because of the pandemic,” said Darlington City Councilman Howard Nettles, community outreach director for Genesis Health Care and advisory board member with Harvest Hope.
Drive-ups were limited to one box per family, though some church representatives picked up supplies for the homebound. The food drive was scheduled to run from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., or until supplies ran out.
