Young volunteers sort food at the Plainville Community Food Pantry on May 8, the day of the U.S. Postal Service letter carriers food collection. As postal trucks arrived at the facility at 54 S. Canal St., the crew unloaded boxes and bags of food that had been donated by residents, carried the items inside and organized them. Susie Woerz, executive director of the food pantry, said about 6,000 pounds of food was collected this weekend and 4,000 pounds of food was collected during the Fill the Truck drive held May 1 and 2.
