Food Drive Begins Next Week

The theme of National Library Week, April 11 - 17, is a fitting one for the Friends' food drive. "Communities Thrive@your library" reflects the role the State Library plays in contributing to bettering the lives of those in the Commonwealth. Among its offerings is a growing collection of electronic Massachusetts state agency documents

Donations will assist the Greater Boston Food Bank in its work. These are some examples of foods desired by hunger-relief organizations.
Canned tuna, chicken, or other meats
Canned soups or chili
Plastic bottles or cans of 100% fruit juice
Pasta, rice, or other grains
Healthy cereal
Dry or boxed shelf-stable milk
Canned beans
Peanut butter
Canned vegetables

Donations may be dropped off in the State Library (Rooms 341 and 442 in the State House). In the John McCormack Building (One Ashburton Place), the locations are the cafeteria on the lower level and the office of the Superintendent of Buildings in Room 107 on the first floor.
