Here it is- $1125 and 130# of food donated to the Missoula Food Bank!!! To put that into perspective- On average, a pound of food costs $1.75 – so the $1,125 raised over the weekend will purchase 643 lbs of food. That in addition to the 131 lbs of actual food – the net donation (in food) of this year’s event is 774 lbs! Of course this could not have been done without the help of all the sponsors (please see below), so a big big thanks goes aout to all of them. Also to those of you that paricipated and brought food to donate. I feel better knowing that a few less people will go hungry. Thanks again to everyone that helped out. To break that down further, the Missoula Food Bank averages 1.5 lbs of food per meal. So – the 774 lbs will provide 516 meals to hungry folks around Missoula. YAY!!
