Mayor Ann Womer Benjamin, right, last week presented a proclamation to Katie and John Monroe, who are heading up this year's Fill A Bag, Feed a Family food collection effort, declaring April 22-29 as Fill A Bag, Feed A Family week in Aurora. It will be the third year for the food driver. In 2016, the Aurora Food Pantry received more than 23,000 pounds of goods from local residents and from cash donations. Food2Share organizes the effort with co-sponsors including the Volunteers of America, churches, the Rotary Club of Aurora, Aurora Baseball League, Boy Scouts, Target of Aurora, Graphics by Design, 3-G Graphics, Curtis Layer Design-Build and the Aurora High service learning class. Bags will be distributed to homes April 22 and picked up April 29.
