Yesterday, Over 8 Tons of Food Gathered for Food for People
Last year, we hosted our first annual Humboldt Holiday Food Drive and we gathered 3,000 pounds of food (that’s 1.5 tons). Our goal this year was to double last year’s total and collect 6,000 pounds of food (3 tons).
This would not have happened without the hard work and generosity of the amazing students at #Ferndale, St. Bernard’s, #Eureka, #Arcata, #McKinleyville and #Fortuna High Schools (more is still coming in) who all hosted their own campus food drives.
Dozens of generous neighbors also stopped by Safeway yesterday to drop off canned food and they donated over $4,000 to Food for People as well.
