Salvation Army hosts Feinstein Food Drive

TOLEDO, OH (Press release) - The Salvation Army of Northwest Ohio will be hosting a food drive from March 1 until April 30 in conjunction with the Feinstein Foundation.  The Salvation Army is asking for non-perishable foods that can be distributed through their food pantry at their downtown offices, as well as monetary donations.

Food will be collected at various sites across the Toledo area, but The Salvation Army is looking for more groups or organizations who would like collection boxes at their sites.  If your group or organization would like to have a collection box at your site, please contact The Salvation Army at 419-241-1138. 

The Salvation Army continues to see an increase in requests for food due to the poor economic conditions in Northwest Ohio. The Salvation Army serves approximately 850 individuals each month through their food pantry and Mobile Social Service Unit. The Feinstein Foundation will distribute up to one million dollars this year to participants in the food drives, all over the United States. 

Each year since 1996, the Feinstein Foundation, started by Alan Shawn Feinstein, encourages non-profits and churches across the country to host food drives in an attempt to end hunger in the United States.  Each non-profit and church reports the total of food and monetary donations, then will receive a portion of the million dollars.  The more food and monetary donations each group brings in will increase the amount of the donation money from the Feinstein Foundation. 

Food items can be dropped off at The Salvation Army, 620 N. Erie St. Toledo, Ohio, Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p..m.
