Kerbey Lane Cafe (five locations, www.kerbeylanecafe.com) has moved its annual Can and Cookie Drive to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank to the month of July, because hunger doesn't take a vacation. Customers who wish to contribute can donate canned goods in exchange for discounts on meals – two canned goods earn you $1 off each check, with a $5 maximum. Sales of homemade cookies will also benefit the project, beginning Friday, July 1.
