The Lord’s Bounty Food Bank came through the Christmas season quite well. Their Food Distribution Chair Dennis Hydamaka says for the month of December alone they took in more money donations than they have in any previous December and also the amount of food that came in was just tremendous. He says they did have a first in that they had a request for 8 Christmas food hampers and fortunately a lady donated 125 dollars for them to buy turkeys and they were able to fill the eight requests.
Hydamaka adds numbers at the Food Bank are about even with the previous year. He says they handed out about 132 hampers in December feeding around 420 people.
