Food bank gets boost from 'Stuff the Van' drive

On behalf of the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank Board members, staff and clients, I appreciate the support of the individuals who donated 1,059 pounds of food during the "Stuff the Van" Food Drive at Walmart on May 5. Thank you to the individuals who donated cash too.

Kenai Mayor Pat Porter, Board members and staff greeted customers and handed out shopping lists of items needed to feed a family of 4-5 individuals for 3 to 4 days. The items included 2 cans Meat/Protein such as canned meat (Spam or tuna), beans, etc., 1 can spaghetti sauce, 1 package spaghetti noodles, 3 fruits and vegetables such as canned fruit, canned vegetables, raisins, dried fruit, 1 box of baking mix (like Bisquick), 1 package rice, hamburger helper, instant mash potatoes, or other meal builders, and Peanut butter. 

All of these donations stay here helping hungry Kenai Peninsula residents such as the clients who said "I don't know what we would do without you! You're a great blessing!" or "Well it's save my life. Thank U." The Food Bank's mission is "We feed people because no one deserves to be hungry."
