The Food Bank’s Food Distribution Chair Dennis Hydamaka says right now they have 187 clients and that equals 420 people and their days are full. He notes normally they slow down in the summer but there’s no indication it this year. Hydamaka says they’ve been very fortunate in that they got a sizable food donation from a construction crew that left town and one of the box stores is providing them now with a weekly donation which is very helpful.
Hydamaka adds even though they have had very generous donations of food they’ve spent just about ten thousand dollars so far this year on food. You can learn more about the Food Bank by contacting them at 204-687-7262.
