Our Holiday Food Distribution has come to a close, and we wanted to take the time to thank everyone who donated food and money, as well as those who volunteered their time, to make sure our hungry neighbors have a meal on the table this holiday. Because of you, on the third day of Holiday Distribution, we gave out 130, 343 pounds of food. That will feed more than 7,100 individuals and nearly 2,500 families.

Overall during the 2010 holidays, we distributed 696,710 pounds of food. That’s enough to feed more than 53,000 individuals and nearly 19,000 families.

We caught up with a dozen customers over the three-day Holiday Food Distribution to find out what’s happening in their lives and why the Freestore Foodbank is so important to them. Check out some of their stories.

It brings us great hope knowing that thousands of our neighbors in need will be enjoying a meal this holiday.

From all of us at the Freestore Foodbank: Happy Holidays!!
