Annual food drive aims to restock local food banks

By: Jesse Martinez
EL PASO, Texas The city and county of El Paso are teaming up once again to help those less fortunate in the area with the 14th Annual MLK Food Drive.

The drive begins Friday, and officials will collect canned and non-perishable food until Jan. 20.

"So anytime you see a donation (box), we ask you to drop in a couple of cans of food for those less fortunate and we will make sure that it gets to them," said Jack Galindo, a spokesperson for the city of El Paso.

Officials restock local public pantries that have been depleted during the holidays, and the donations will be sorted and distributed through several community organizations including the Center Against Family Violence, the Opportunity Center for the Homeless, the Raynolds Home and others.

The food will be collected at dozens of drop-off locations throughout the city:

Big 8 Food stores
City Hall
County Courthouse
El Paso Juvenile Justice Center
Public libraries
Sheriff's Department facilities
Walmart stores
Walmart Neighborhood Markets
