Triathletes' food donations appreciated

Thank you all who gave food during the Tri-the-Kenai Triathlon food drive. You made a difference in a family’s life when you donated. Thank you to the Triathlon organizers for choosing The Food Bank as this year’s recipient of donations and hosting a food drive with the awesome prize of a $900 certificate from Beemum’s Bike & Ski Loft.

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank received 641 pounds of food which means 427 meals for hungry Kenai Peninsula residents. This food distributed to our 70 plus partner agencies from Moose Pass to Homer feeds a lot of hungry mouths.

Staff enjoyed attending the awesome event with all the “I Can Do” athletes, supportive family and friends plus energetic volunteers in this great community on a beautiful day.

The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank has served the Kenai Peninsula for 25 years: We feed people because no one deserves to be hungry. Our mission is to provide nourishing food to those in need and to promote public awareness of hunger issues. We are dedicated to addressing hunger on the Kenai Peninsula by distributing food to the hungry directly or through associated nonprofit agencies.

Please add this date to your calendar: September 7th for the 17thannual Soup Supper and Auction at Kenai Central High School. Like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/kpfoodbank and visit our webpage at http://www.kpfoodbank.org/.
