Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Community Food Connection board of directors and our 5,000-plus monthly clients, I want to thank the Blount County Realtors, as well as our regular volunteers for a record-setting food drive, Sept. 27-29.

We collected 13,200 pounds of food and more than $2,000 in cash donations. Thanks also to Mark Cavalaris, manager of the Maryville Kroger, and his staff for all their help in making this a successful drive. They kept the shelves of our display stocked all three days. This will go a long way in helping us reduce food insecurity among the citizens of Blount County. 

Bob Haralson
