Royer’s annual food drive collected more than one ton of non-perishable items for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and the Greater Berks Food Bank.

From June 18-July 2, “Royer’s Stems Hunger” asked customers to drop off donations at any Royer’s store in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties.

In return, customers received a free carnation for each food item, up to a maximum of six carnations per family per visit.

This year’s total of 2,061 pounds included contributions from five Drayer Physical Therapy Institute outpatient centers in the midstate.

In its six-year history, Royer’s Stems Hunger has collected nearly 12,000 pounds of food.
