Auburn Downtown Food Drive Now Underway

Auburn Food Bank logo 

The annual Downtown Auburn food drive starts October 26 and will run through November 20 in historic downtown. All proceeds will benefit The Auburn Food Banklinks to external site.

Every year, participating businesses keep a container for residents to stop by and drop off food items.  With more participants, and a drive-thru option, downtown businesses hope to help meet the needs in the Auburn community in a BIG way.

This year, there will be a drive-thru option at A Street Automotive. The shop is opening up their back area for residents who want to want to donate and drive on. A Street Automotive is located at 225 A St. SE.  Owner Allan Thomason suggested this idea and said donors can either drive in their front parking lot and go inside the store or drive behind the building for food drop off. Their shop hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
