‘Restock the Shelves’ food drive on Wednesday, April 2 (PHOTOS)

GREENSBORO, N.C. — In an effort to replace food that was spoiled due to the loss of power during recent winter storms, the City of Greensboro is hosting a city-wide food drive from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, April 2.

During the “Restock the Shelves” event, residents are encouraged to drop off nonperishable or canned food items at any of the city’s 24 fire stations.

The city is collaborating with Greensboro Urban Ministry, which will collect and distribute the food to multiple partner agencies through its food bank, the Volunteer Center of Greensboro and FOX8.

In addition to the public food drive, City of Greensboro employees are participating in an in-house collection effort.
