The generosity of Delta citizenry was remarkable in Saturday's annual postal food drive. During these trying economic times, the Delta community contributed over 4,000 pounds of nonperishable food for those in need. That's two tons of food! Delta Food Pantry volunteers, youth from the Delta High School ASTRA service club and U.S. Postal Service carriers joined together to gather and sort the food that will keep the Delta Food Pantry stocked and serving those in need. Year to date, nearly 15,000 meals have been provided.

The food drive is one way to help those in Delta who need assistance. Volunteers are also needed. Or, a financial contribution may be mailed to The Delta Food Pantry, 1140 Howard Street, Delta, CO 81416. The pantry is open weekdays 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. in the alley behind 6th and Meeker.
