The Community Food Bank Needs Grub and Dough

Posted By on Wed, Feb 28, 2007 at 10:47 AM

This came in a news release from the Community Food Bank:

The Community Food Bank is in need of help. Financial and food donations are down and the Food Bank is experiencing an increase in requests for emergency food boxes. Financial giving is off 10% from this time last year, with food donations down 8%. “This is having a significant impact on our resource,” said President and CEO Bill Carnegie. “Combine these deficiencies with an increase of over 1,000 additional emergency food boxes each month and you begin to understand the problem,” he added.

The Food Bank is especially concerned as summer approaches and more local families with children will be needing food. Each emergency food box the Food Bank distributes provides about $33.00 worth of food. “If we could get everyone to sponsor one or two emergency food boxes for a local family during the month of March, it would really help,” added Carnegie.

The Community Food Bank can be reached at 3003 S. Country Club Road, at 622-0525 or online at
