Local radio stations competed to help feed the hungry on Saturday
They held a pasta drive,and their goal was to collect at least a ton of pasta.
The proceeds will go to fill up local food pantries.
The annual event was held at Brewer, Bangor and Old Town Hannaford stores.
Each location was competing against each other to collect the most pasta.
Organizers of the event say that a little bit of a donation, can go a long way.
“The community is great. They are so willing to reach out and help their neighbors and just be a part of it. It doesn’t take much. One box of pasta could feed four of everybody’s neighbors,” said Robin Lozier, an adult case worker for Manna Ministries.
“Just a small donation, adding an extra box to your grocery cart can make a big impact so we’re here. We stand out here for four hours to collect just as many as we can and it’s great. It’s nice to know that we can get together and make a difference,” said Sabrina and Kid from the Z 107.3 radio station.
Last year the drive collected more than 6 tons of pasta.
