Dillon’s, the Kansas Department of Agriculture, Harvesters and the Kansas Food Bank are teaming up for a state-wide food drive: Neighbor to Neighbor. The food drive will kick off on Monday and run thru Ag Day, March 19.
Dillon’s customers will have the opportunity to purchase non-perishable food items to place in donation bins, and they will also be able to donate either $1 or $5 at the register.
As a partner agency with the Kansas Food Bank, McPherson County Food Bank will benefit from the food and funds collected from the local McPherson Dillon’s store.
