“It’s heartbreaking to know there are children in our area who do not have adequate food to eat at home on the weekends,” says Linda McDaniel, a Carolina Schooling Show and food drive organizer. “By banding together and each contributing at least one item, we can make a big difference in the lives of these children.”

Suggested items are: individual boxes of cereal bars, juice boxes, fruit cups, pudding cups, applesauce, peanut butter, cheese crackers, pop-top cans of spaghetti-os, ravioli, beanie weenies, soup and mac ‘n’ cheese.
