SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Springs Lions Club 5th Annual "Because Hunger Doesn't End With the Holidays" food drive collected a record amount of food for local food pantries in Saratoga on Saturday, January 18. Partnering with the Golub and Hannaford Corporations, the club collected donations at four area Price Chopper, Market 32 and Hannaford stores. All of the donations received were shared equally with seven area pantries, including the Franklin Community Center Pantry, Wilton Food Pantry, St. Clement's Church Pantry, Saratoga EOC Pantry, Shelters of Saratoga Pantry, Presbyterian Church Pantry and Salvation Army Pantry. In total the club collected approximately 7,500 pounds of food and monetary donations of $330! The monetary donations will go toward the Saratoga Springs School District School Lunch program. 

The Lions are especially grateful to the tremendous outpouring of support from members of our community! Your donations will go a long way toward restocking the shelves of our food pantries, which many fellow members of our community rely on.
