The City of Dover is participating in a holiday food drive and is now accepting food item donations at City Hall, 288 Central Ave.

The food drive supports End 68 Hours of Hunger, a nonprofit effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive at school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive at school on Monday morning. The program, established in New Hampshire in 2011, puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend.
