NORTH PORT — The Cranberry Elementary cafeteria was a hive of activity after school Friday, as student and adult volunteers moved from table to table, organizing foodstuffs into categories, while others carried paper grocery bags and filled them from the growing piles.

All the preparation is for the Mayors Feed the Hungry Thanksgiving food drive program, and the food, along with turkeys, will be distributed Saturday morning so North Port residents who might not otherwise have a Thanksgiving dinner won’t go without. “Those in need will be getting much-needed food,” said Cranberry principal Linda McCloud, who added the North Port school has been the distribution point for the city’s Mayors Feed the Hungry program for 10 years now. “The line is out there at 8 (a.m.) and goes down the block.”
