MCC Summertime food drive

Summer can be a difficult time for families whose children are not in school and as result not receiving daily subsidized breakfast and lunch.  Please consider donating cans of peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, pasta, tuna or any other staples.  Just drop your donation in the barrels outside of the Oak room all summer long.
