  • Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office, 714 1/2 Greensboro Avenue

Non-perishable food items are needed for the food drive. The most requested items include canned goods, grits, canned meats, peanut butter, pasta, macaroni and cheese, jelly, and spaghetti sauce. Donors are encouraged to avoid any items in glass jars.

The "Mitigate Hunger" Food Drive will continue through Monday, December 14th.
