SHARE reaches summer target

Remember the Food Bank campaign successful in reaching financial and food goals

The Share food bank has met its goals for finding food and funds for the Tri-Cities during the typically slow summer months.
The organization said in a release it met its target for the Remember the Food Bank campaign by collecting more than 1,000 pounds of food and more than $10,000. Hitting the financial target was made possible by a donation of $1,500 from Wesbild, said the release.
The release said Share sees a drop off in donations after the school year ends with families heading off on summer vacation. Share said the strain on families is even greater in the summer for those with kids who participate in various breakfast and lunch programs during the school year.
