HIGHLIGHT

Thousands of Holiday meals are available for local families this month. Freestore Foodbank Holiday Food Distribution is starting its mission to feed the tristate for the holiday early. Around 7,500 families were served by Freestore Foodbank last November, and the same kind of demand is expected this year. Every dollar donated to the Freestore Foodbank helps provide three meals for local families. If you’re able, donate today.
