Locations to donate food for the drive are at each Franklin County library branch, each town hall, the Louisburg Senior Center and Howe’s Your Pizza in Bunn.
Each Franklin County school will be collecting to as well. Also, the Early College community service club will have a public collection to fill up two pickup trucks on Nov. 1.
The Feeding Franklin network is supported by Food Lion and federal emergency food funds. Food pantries that are part of the network agree to respond to emergency food needs through United Way referrals throughout the year.
All food donated will be distributed Dec. 2-17 to food pantries in Franklin County — most of them small church pantries, Care and Share, Volunteers in Medicine, Youngsville Area Business Association’s Christmas effort and the Bunn soup kitchen.
