The food drive starts at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

“If you’re not home, please leave your items at the end of your driveway so they can be picked up,” said organizer Gary McLaughlin from the RCMP.

The crews have willingly donated their time and energy to gather non-perishable food items to help feed the community.
