Donations make a difference in community

Posted: January 10, 2013 - 3:15pm  |  Updated: January 11, 2013 - 10:07am

You made a difference in a family’s life when you donated food during recent food drives or bought a bag of food at a local Safeway store or deposited funds in a Kenai Peninsula Food Bank account. Laura writes “This box of food means ... not going to bed hungry, waking and being able to have a meal. Thank you to all who gives.” A disabled veteran says, “I continue to survive because of this Food Bank and Kitchen. Thank you for contributing to my meager survival.”

A meal requires a pound and a half of ingredients. Food drives in November and December provided over 16,860 meals! Funds collected pay utilities and other expenses required to process a million pounds of food and related goods each year.

Is your New Year’s resolution to lose weight in 2013? Clean out your food pantry and donate tempting food or 5 pounds of flour for the 5 pounds you lost!

National Day of Service will be on January 21 at the Food Bank. For more information visit https://donate.2013pic.org/page/event/search_simple.
