(Updated 2:20 p.m.) It’s been a week of ups and downs for the Safeway next to the Bradlee Shopping Center.
On Thursday (Dec. 19), at 11 a.m., the Safeway at 3526 King Street is scheduled to host a donation event during which over 800 boneless hams from Hormel — just in time for the holidays — and 100 jars of peanut butter will be handed over to CAFB, according to a press release.
The release notes that this amounts to 4,800 servings of ham and enough peanut butter to make 1,000 sandwiches.
The food bank, meanwhile, will distribute the food through a network of community organizations and directly delivering food to hard-to-reach areas.
