The Warwick USDA Service Center is 100 pound closer to their goal of donating 250 pounds of food to local food banks this summer thanks to a generous donation by Holly Pashnik of Cumberland, RI.  In celebration of her ninth birthday, Holly asked her guests to bring non-perishable food items to help hungry families instead of gifts to her party.  This week, Holly and her brother Ryan delivered 100 pounds of food to the USDA Service Center as part of the Feds, Farmers, and Friends Feed Families Program.  “I wanted to help children who don’t have enough food in the summer because they are missing the hot lunch and breakfast they get at school,” said Holly. “My aunt told me about Feds, Farmers, and Friends Feed Families Program and I took the food my friends donated and bought some more food so that we could bring 100 pounds to donate.” Donations are being collected at USDA offices across the country through August 31st and are given to local area food banks.
