NEW CASTLE, Del. (AP/WBOC)- Officials in Delaware are holding a food drive to help replenish the pantry stocks at state service centers where residents can go to get food.

The food drive will start Friday and continue through Jan. 21. Residents are being asked to drop off non-perishable items at the state's 15 service centers as well as several blood banks around the state. The main Department of Health and Social Services center in New Castle will also be a collection site.

Officials say last year state service centers helped more than 10,000 people with emergency food supplies. Items the centers most need include oatmeal and cereal, canned fruit, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese and soups.
