RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com)- Volunteers helping Evelyn Mount say that they have an abundance of food but no one is coming by to take it.

They say they have had to close down their food drive early at 1 p.m. Sunday but would like to stay open later if more people showed up.

The drive continues until Monday, December 23rd. To get food people need to do is bring a photo ID and proof of residence, like an electricity bill.

I would have been there if i knew where it was going on. it seems these handouts are announced just before they happen, and maybe only certain people are informed of the locations; like returning clients, because the only people saying good things about mt. evelyn are the ones who say they have been getting help successfully for long amounts of time while us newbies are running around like a chicken with its head cut off just to be told the line is closed for the day or not getting an answer at all on the other end of the line. it is a lot for some to go out in hopes of a mealor two when they have no money for gas; in which case a phone call can make a huge difference..posting a location and time on a voicemail would effectively get the message out without using valuable time from employees..something needs to change if someone has that much food and multiple familirs are hungry in the same city..not good

after all the pleading on local TV, showing empty shelves. Y doesn't she just have the Food Bank pick it all up? What's with local charities, anyway?

Welfare and government handouts are better.

Hmmm…maybe the economy is getting better, despite the best efforts of some to claim it is stil a shambles…
