APPLE VALLEY – Metal bands and soul food are in store, this Saturday, at DND Live Productions’ “Can You Drive” food drive at Frogee’s on Highway 18. They are working in partnership with High Desert Second Chance Food Bank to distribute food to those in need.
“We are putting on the most entertaining food drive in the High Desert. We’ll be collecting canned foods for the High Desert Second Chance Food Bank. We’ll have four incredible bands playing great sets of music,” said DND Live Productions Co-Owner J.F.

Cans collected throughout this week and Saturday will be given to High Desert Second Chance Food Bank.
“I simply called them one day and they were down from the beginning,” said Stone about the organization. “We really appreciate them coming on board and we love all the hard work they do.”
