The Council on Aging in Volusia County is holding a food drive to help feed 250 seniors in need. The food drive kicks off May 3rd and runs through May 9th. The community is invited to drop off a bag of canned goods at their neighborhood Walgreens locations throughout Volusia County during this time. Walgreens will also display a wish list of needed items throughout their stores. Fill your bag with donation items like canned fruit, ham, chicken or tuna, instant mashed potatoes, peanut butter in plastic jars, canned spaghetti sauce, packaged pasta or rice meals, soup, or sugar free cookies or desserts.
