‘Formality Feeds Flagler’
The Flagler Palm Coast High School Formality Singers have launched an effort called “Formality Feeds Flagler” to collect nonperishables for Flagler Beach United Methodist Church’s food pantry, which is currently empty, said Libby Keen, group member.
“They give two bags of food to the families that live in Flagler Beach that need them because they were deeply affected by the hurricanes and are still having issues paying for all of the repairs and affording food for their families at the same time,” Keen said of the church’s food pantry efforts.
Items needed include: canned foods, cereal, flour, pasta, rice, sugar, vegetable oil, peanut butter, beans and juice. Those interested can donate at the church, located at 1520 S. Daytona Ave., Flagler Beach, year-round, but the Formality Singer’s food drive goes until Sept. 29.
