Food Drive continues through end of August

July 27, 2015

Residents throughout central Wisconsin still have until the end of August to help individuals and families in need of food, through the MCPL food drive. The library is working with the Marathon County Hunger Coalition on the food drive, which ends Aug. 22, to benefit food pantries across our area.

Anyone from across the central Wisconsin area or beyond is welcome and encouraged to drop off non-perishable items during regular business hours at any MCPL location:
Athens, Edgar, Hatley, Marathon, Mosinee, Rothschild, Spencer, Stratford and Wausau.

If you would like to donate, please consider some of these suggested items: canned fruit and vegetables, cereal, peanut butter, packaged or canned meals, pasta, soup, canned tuna and other canned meats, juice (100 percent fruit, please) and spaghetti sauce.

Food items not accepted include dented or bulged cans, open packages, home-canned foods and infant formula beyond its expiration date.

Call 715-261-7200 or stop by any library branch for more information, and thank you for your help!
