For 13 years, the Knights of Columbus #13338 in Delray Beach has been collecting thousands of pounds of food for CROS Ministries and its food pantries in Palm Beach and Martin counties. Last April, they rallied to bring in 7,000 pounds of nonperishable donations, according to organizer Doug Moore.

For its second food drive this year, the Knights will be accepting donations (no glass containers) from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16 and 7:30 a.m. to noon Sunday, Oct. 17 at Emmanuel Catholic Church, 15700 S. Military Trail, in Delray Beach.

The Lake Worth-based CROS Ministries also organizes gleaning efforts, to-go and drive-thru meal distributions, and a summer day camp program for children living in Title I zip codes.

According to Feeding South Florida, a hunger relief organization, over 1 million people, including over 300,000 children, don’t know where they will get their next meal in South Florida.
