MANCHESTER TOWNSHIP, York County, Pa. -- A local grocery store is helping feed school children this summer in York County.

Leg Up Farmers Market in Manchester Township is collecting food for the Central York School District's "Panther Pantry."

The fundraiser will help feed kids this summer who rely on free lunches during the regular school year.

Team leader, Dan Stump says he and his team hope to fill that gap and bring awareness to hunger problems that exist in our area.

"One of the things we do really well is food, so this is an event we got really excited about. We were glad to hear about this idea, which made it really easy to donate just by walking in and grabbing one of these bags," Stump said.

Leg Up Farmers Market, located at 3100 North George Street, will be accepting non-perishable items through Sunday, July 2nd.
