The 27th annual food drive was set up at the San Leandro US Post Office on Abram Court and more than 30 volunteers came to support the food drive that included former City Councilmember Candidates Kenneth Pon and Bryan Azevedo, San Leandro Key Club members, local High School students, and Davis Street staff.
