City collecting food donations

The city of Liberty Lake is running a food drive through Dec. 22 to collect donations for Second Harvest Food Bank.

Donations can be dropped off at City Hall, 22710 E. Country Vista Drive, during business hours. All nonperishable items are welcome, but holiday items such as stuffing, canned vegetables, gravy and potatoes are particularly in demand. The demand for holiday food baskets is expected to be higher than usual this year.
