The Dallas Harvest Festival committee recently announced that it will collaborate with the Dallas School District and the Shavertown and Dallas Thomas’ Family Markets locations to help collect food items for the Back Mountain Food Pantry through its Friends Feeding Friends Campaign. People attending the festival are encouraged to bring a non-perishable item to drop off from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday at the Friends Feeding Friends booth.
