The food drive provides the food pantry with over 50 percent of their annual need, and this year’s need is greater than years past because of government cutbacks. Coyoteopoly requests the public’s help and support by wearing orange on Hunger Awareness Day, fasting for a meal and donating the cost, and leaving non-perishable food items out by 10 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 26.
