How much food can fit into a Subaru? Oswego County Opportunities (OCO) Nutrition Services received the answer as Subaru Ambassadors and community members generously donated several boxes of food to benefit OCO Nutrition Services.

Hosted by area Subaru Ambassadors, the Stuff-a-Subaru Food Drive was part of a OCO Nutrition Services’ partnership with the 2018 Subaru Share the Love Event ®. A collaboration between Subaru, Meals on Wheels of America and local Meals on Wheels programs across the country, the Subaru Share the Love Event® serves to highlight the importance of local Meals on Wheels programs.

Held at the Fulton Elks Club, the food drive featured indoor mini golf on a course designed and supplied by Backyard ReCreations, face painting, and various games. Refreshments were provided by Wegman’s and Cake Commander.

In addition to the food drive the event also brought together Subaru owners for a unique aerial photograph. To emphasize the love in Share the Love, OCO employee and Subaru Ambassador Candra McFarland-Gawarecki and Subaru Ambassador Meg Rheaume recruited the Fulton Fire Department, photographer John DeRousie, drone photographer Bob Sweeting, and fellow Subaru enthusiasts including OCO employees, CNY Subies group members, family and friends to create and capture an aerial photograph of Subaru vehicles positioned to spell L-O-V-E.
