Payson Food Drive Biggest Ever


The city of Payson had its biggest food donation drive ever this last year.

Organizer Chuck Proudfoot told the Payson Roundup the goal was to raise $50,ooo and 30,000 pounds of food. When the drive wrapped up last Sunday, there were well-over 30 thousand pounds and more than $104,000 in monetary donations. Proudfoot says some people who donated told him it was money they would have spent on family events or travel if not for the coronavirus pandemic.
