A local business is once again spearheading an effort to collect food for summer lunches for local kids in need.

Items needed include peanut butter and jelly, mac and cheese, cereal, applesauce, chicken noodle soup, fruit roll ups, canned fruit and pudding. The items can be dropped off at several locations, including any Liberty Bank branch, Karen Wilson's State Farm office, Evangelical School, and Atlantis Pools.
