Solid Figures For Annual ESS Food Drive

comm conn Revy

We now have numbers from Revelstoke's ESS Food Drive..

It's the biggest annual fundraiser for Revelstoke's Food Bank.

Organizer Patti Larson has the figures from Tuesday night, saying "12,400lbs of food, which is almost the same as last year, and we collected $6,800 in cash this year, which is similar to previous years."

Larson also has word on what the cash donations support "We use it to purchase our perishable items like milk, things we don't have donated. We do have to buy some bread, fresh vegetables, and specific foods for our kids-snacks program."

Food donations are expected to last into May.
