The Hilton Garden Inn will be hosting a food drive from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, at 19677 E. Jackson Drive, Independence.

Stop by and drop off any of the items listed and help stop hunger in our community: Canned fruits vegetables, boxed meals (Hamburger Helper, Pasta Roni), canned meats/tuna, peanut butter/jelly, canned soup, and hot and cold cereal. There is also a need for household supplies and personal care items: Soap, deodorant, shampoo and toilet paper.

Every year, millions of pounds of food go to waste in our own community. Food drives are Harvesters' best source for a variety of nutritious and critically needed food items, personal care products, paper goods and household supplies. For every $1 donated, Harvesters can provide five meals.
