Leggett to Help Distribute Food to Manna Food Center Clients *****Photo Opportunity*****

Will Highlight Urgent Need in County as Ride On Kicks Off ‘Give and Ride Week’ Starting April 28

Thursday, April 23, 2013; 1 p.m.

Manna Food, 9311 Gaither Road, Gaithersburg


Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett will join Manna Food Center Executive Director Minerva Delgado in urging residents to make donations to the Ride On bus system’s annual “Give and Ride” program, which will be held this year April 28 through May 4. Manna feeds 3,600 hungry families a month.

Everyone in the County can participate in the food drive. Ride On passengers get a free ride in exchange for a non-perishable food item or children’s item. Others can participate in the food drive by giving their donations to any Ride On bus driver or by sending contributions directly to Manna.  Disposable diapers, formula, baby or toddler food and juice are especially useful to families in need.

Photo Opportunity: Leggett will help distribute food to Manna clients. A Ride On bus with a food collection bag and promotional Give and Ride poster will be at Manna.
