Wayzata High School student Aylah Smith unloads donations from a vehicle March 30 during Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners’ Shop Then Drop event. The drive-thru donation drop-off was part of the Prevent Hunger campaign, which aims to raise $200,000 in donations and items by April 16. The effort will help stock the food shelf at Interfaith Outreach while also aiding the organization to fight hunger at its root causes through employment and family support services.

Interfaith Outreach volunteers collect donations for the organization’s food shelf. The drive-thru donation event was part of the nonprofit’s Prevent Hunger campaign, which runs through April 16. Prevent Hunger organizers are seeking specific items for the food shelf this year. Among the most-needed items are shampoo, conditioner, body wash, cooking oils (vegetable, coconut, olive, canola, avocado, sesame, etc.) and cereal. Other needed items include infant formula, canned meat, paper towels and toilet paper. For more information, visit iocp.org/preventhunger. (Sun photo by Jason Jenkins)
