Hybrid Fitness, 161 Main St., recently held a food drive to support the AIO Food Pantry in Rockland. The gym's goal, 500 food items, took a little over a month to reach. Hybrid Fitness owner Hunter Grindl, was overwhelmed, but not surprised, by the generosity of his clients.

“I announced the food drive and almost immediately the gym began to fill with nonperishable items. Our gym is made up of incredible people with a real heart for our communities,” he said.

Hybrid Fitness donated more than 500 items totaling 482 pounds to AIO May 15. The pantry has recently seen a 30 percent increase in the demand for food.
