Janesville City Council food drive called a success
Janesville City Manager Eric Levitt expects the city council will consider another "Big Give" food drive after the success of this past weekend's effort.
Levitt says the idea flowed from a council goal setting process to assist with poverty issues in Janesville. Council members manned collection sites at five local grocery stores.
Saturday's four-hour effort collected 5400 pounds of food for the pantries at Echo and the Salvation Army.
