UDMO Fall Food Drive

Spencer, IA (KICD) — A local food pantry receives a hefty amount of collected food items.

KICD, CD 107.7 and Lite 104.9, along with the Southpark Mall in Spencer had a fall food drive to help out the UDMO Food Pantry.  The foods collected were taken to UDMO (today) Wednesday, and UDMO Director Anita Jorgenson was very excited about the amount they received…

KICD/KLLT Stations General Manager Dave Putnam said the total weight of the collected goods was at 1000 lbs, and Jorgenson again expressed the pleasure at the total…

While the amount collected in the drive was outstanding, Jorgenson says it doesnt stay around long, as the food pantry provides meals for 7 to 10 days, and depending if it’s for one person or a family of 6, a lot of food goes to one cause.

When comparing the supplies this year to years past, Jorgenson feels it’s a bit light…

Anyone wanting to make a food donation or monetary donation, can do so by dropping off the food or monies during their business hours.  UDMO is open Monday through Thursday from 8-am to 4-pm, and Friday from 8-am until noon.and is located at 407 East 3rd Street, in Spencer.
