A food drive put on by Hoffman’s Chocolates in its Palm Beach County locations has collected over 200 pounds of food that Hoffman’s then donated to Palm Beach State College to give to students in need, according to a news release. The food drive, which ran from Nov. 1 through Nov. 15, offered a free scoop of ice cream in exchange for one nonperishable food item at the Greenacres, Palm Beach Gardens, Delray Beach and Boca Raton locations.
“The stores were able to collect more than 200 pounds of necessary food items, which equals 188 meals for Palm Beach State College students,” the news release read. “The Palm Beach State College Panther Pantry serves 20-25 students a day and each student can take up to 10 pounds of food a week.”
The Panther Pantry helps provide food, toiletries and school supplies to PBSC students with food insecurity for free.
