General McLane School District students, teachers and community members volunteered and conducted the first Produce Express food distribution in Erie County on Monday, January 20 from 3:30 until 6:30. This was coordinated, planned and carried out as a joint project between VFW Post 740 Edinboro-McKean and the Second Harvest Food Bank of NW Pennsylvania.

Volunteers bagged up and handed out a total of 4,005 pounds of food, including onions, carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, blueberries, apples, crackers, cocoa, and breads and bakery foods.  The food was distributed to 92 families with a total of 263 family members.
