Mid-Kansas Coop organizes food drive
Mid-Kansas Cooperative Community Involvement is organizing their sixth annual food drive to support local food banks. Throughout April, they will collect non-perishable food and toiletry items.
“We called local food banks to ask what they are in dire need of and they requested items such as detergent, shampoo, body soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and non-perishable foods,” said Lamont Turcotte, plant manager at Groveland location and MKC Community Involvement Committee member.
Last year, MKC employees collected 3,448 pounds of food collectively. This year, MKC is challenging locations to collect ten pounds of items per employee.
Donation sites will be located at each MKC co-op –Florence, Goessel, Peabody, and Burns.
