During April, Curves of Johnstown will participate in the 13th annual Curves Food Drive to collect non-perishable food and cash donations to benefit the local food bank.

Current members who make a $30 cash donation or an equivalent value food are eligible to receive a Curves reusable Food Drive grocery bag. And from April 4-17, Curves will waive the membership fee for new members who donate a bag of non-perishable food or make a minimum donation of $30.

In addition to the food and monetary donations that each of the company's gyms collect, Curves International offers gyms the opportunity to win cash prizes for their local food banks. Prizes will be awarded to clubs with the most food collected, clubs that beat their 2010 donation level by the largest amount and to two randomly selected clubs drawn from all that enter the contest.

Curves clubs have donated more than 61 million pounds of food in the U.S. and Canada since 2004.
