Many residents lost their homes or were forced to evacuate, losing their stored food in the process. Officials say any donations of game animal meat must be frozen and securely packed. They say the food also must have a label showing what type of meat it is and a packaging date. Donations can be dropped off at the Food Depot during normal business hours. Donations are being accepted up until October 7.
