Church to host food drive
SANTA BARBARA — Waypoint Church SB is hosting a drive-through food drive every third Sunday of the month. The next drive will be from 10 a.m. to noon Aug. 15 at the church, 3942 La Colina Road.
In consideration of the health of the community, volunteers will continue to take pandemic safety precautions. Donors will have the option to drive through the church parking lot to drop off their donations (canned and other non-perishable goods), contact-free.
All donations will go to the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County. The food drive is an option for donors who wish to support local families currently facing food insecurity but are unavailable during the Foodbank’s hours from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
