The Lord’s Bounty Food Bank came through the Christmas season quite well. Their Food Distribution Chair Dennis Hydamaka says it was a banner year. He says they had a large number of food drives and a large number of cash drives but unfortunately the other side was also true. He says in December alone they served 53.7 percent more people than they did in the same month last year and they handed out 41 percent more hampers.
Hydamaka adds year over year as of the end of December they’re up 15.2 percent in the number of people fed and up 12 and a half percent in the number of hampers they’ve distributed.
