The East Hampton Food Pantry's annual Harvest Food Drive will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the lawn in front of the East Hampton Middle School. The pantry is looking for donations of canned goods and nonperishable food items, and its volunteers will even help carry donations from your car.

Also on Saturday, at Stop and Shop on Newtown Lane, volunteers will be outside, carts at the ready, collecting donations and distributing lists of foods that generous shoppers can buy for food pantry clients.

In addition, the East Hampton Food Pantry is running a virtual food drive — at bit.ly/3FWsUeQ — through Friday that allows shopping from home for donations, all of which will be delivered directly to the pantry. Donations are tax-deductible, too.
