Pinellas County, FL – RCS Pinellas said a drop in donations comes as at time when more people need their help.
A RCS spokesperson sent us this information: “During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen a major decrease in food donations. Due to low supply, our grocery store pickups have decreased as well. This not only affects our food bank and the guests that come through our doors, but this also affects the other 75 sub-sites (food pantries/soup kitchens) that we support as well.”READ MORE: The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office In Contract With FDOT For Speed Enforcement
