The Humboldt Holiday Food Drive is happening this week to benefit Food for People, which is seeing an increased need this year amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Non-perishable food items can be dropped off at:

• Eureka Co-op, Fourth and B streets in Eureka: Monday, Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. to  1 p.m. or 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

• Wildberries, 747 18th St. in Arcata: Tuesday, Dec. 8, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. or 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.

• Safeway, 2555 Harris St. in Eureka: Thursday, Dec. 10, 3:00 p.m. to 6 p.m, which will see KHUM and state Sen. Mike McGuire teaming up for a drive up and donate event.

Food for People is encouraging those who are able to make a tax-deductible donation or to host a virtual food drive to raise funds, noting that it can purchase three bags of food for what the average person would pay for one using its wholesale buying ability, in effect tripling the contribution.

Also, the nonprofit that serves more than 12,000 people a month has limited space to store food donations due to devastating damage at its main building caused by the sewer back up in late February, just before COVID shutdowns began.
