The York County Commissioner of the Revenue’s office is participating in the third annual Commissioners and Cans Food and Fund Drive for the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Revenue offices all over the state are coming together for this drive to fill the shelves of seven local food banks like Feed More and Feeding America.

The two-week long donation event begins Monday, Feb. 1 and continues through Monday, Feb. 15. This time of year is extremely tough for food banks and the community’s help is so important to feed hungry families in the area.

“Offices compete to collect the most food/funds during a time of the year when resources are in short supply and the need remains great,” according to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank’s website. “Families and individuals are having to make difficult choices, sacrificing the basic need … food.”

“For every dollar donated, the Foodbank can provide the equivalent of four meals,” the event description noted.

The most needed items are canned fruits and vegetables, canned meat, peanut butter, pasta, soup and macaroni and cheese.

Monetary donations can also be be made here.
