ACCESS said with the holiday season and two 31-day months, food stamps for familes can run out.
To help the community, ACCESS provides a five-day supply of food to qualifying seniors, individuals and families who come to one of its 24-hour food pantries.
Last year the community donated 7,831 pounds of food and $19,930 to the drive.
As of Wednesday, 7,250 pounds of food and $15,497 were donated.
ACCESS is looking for foods rich in protein including peanut butter, canned tuna, canned meats and beans. Non-perishable foods are also needed.
Grocery donations can be dropped off at the Mail Tribune, ACCESS, any fire station, Sherm’s Thunderbird, Food 4 Less, Ascension Lutheran Church, Medford Congregational Church, St. Peter’s Lutheran Church and Westminster Presbyterian Church.
Cash donations can be made online.
Every dollar provides four meals.
