Middlebury food drive ends Friday with big event

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury’s Department of Public Works is bringing attention to National Public Works Week (May 20 – 26) by putting on a food drive.
All proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects (HOPE). Public Works personnel were present this week at various locations in the community handing out information and collecting non-perishable food, which can be dropped off at such locations as Shaw’s and Hannaford supermarkets, the Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op, Middlebury Legion Post No. 27, VFW Post 7823 and the Middlebury Post Office.
The effort culminates on Friday, May 25, at the town’s new recreation facility on Creek Road with an equipment display, bouncy house, outdoor and indoor games and free food and beverage. Kids are invited to a “Touch-the-Truck” event where they can get up close to a Public Works vehicle or two.
Food will be served from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
