Thanks for doing this! This is a big part of the reason I buy locally- because our companies tend to engage and do good work in our communities. Cheers!

I left a bag of food in a white bag, in plain sight, next to the milk box and it wasn't picked up. I will leave it out again next week and hope it gets picked up.

How about a staff stand up meeting where all drivers get the same " word" , pickup the donations that are Next to the Smith Brother box.
Also, suggest to clients to write in big letters on box or bag, DONATION FOR FOOD DRIVE - SMITH BROTHERS

I had two bags sitting next to our porch box, with "Food Drive" written on them. The milkman just left them sitting there.

We have asked to skip our delivery tomorrow, the 29th, but we would still like to donate food.  Can we do that?
