Two local Dignity Memorial providers are participating in a drive to benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank as part of the annual Operation Feed project.

Residents can drop off food items between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday at Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens, 5600 E. Broad St., Columbus, and at Sunset Cemetery, 6959 W. Broad St., Galloway, through May 25.

The goal is to fill three 50-foot semi-trailers.

Needed items include canned pasta meals, peanut butter, canned fruit, tuna, soup, canned vegetables and canned meat.

All donations go to feed hungry people in central Ohio.

According to information from the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, the agency provides food for more than 47,000 meals a day.

The goal of Operation Feed 2009 is to collect enough food for 5-million meals.
