NU senior holds food drive on Sunday

Nicholas Noto, a senior at Nevada Union High School, will be offering free coffee drinks Sunday in exchange for nonperishable food items dropped off at Java on the Run.

He’ll be at the drive-through coffee shop from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 9 on Sutton Way in front of Staples, in Glenbrook Basin, Grass Valley. For very two items, the donor will receive a free coffee, Noto said.

The drive benefits the Nevada County Food Bank.

“It relates to my senior research project on the effect of community service on the individual doing the service, the community that it’s taking place in and society as a whole,” said Noto, 18.

His parents, Java on the Run owners Becky and Art Noto, held a food drive over the Christmas holiday and gathered two or three large barrels of food and about $200 in cash donations, Noto said.

“I’m just hoping to get a good turnout,” Noto said. It’s his first community service involvement of any kind, and he wanted to see how it felt, he added.
