Dump hunger update

A group of local businesses have a really big goal - fill a dump truck with 225,000 pounds of food and donate it to Second Harvest. Their food drive ends Feb. 7 and they have managed to collect enough food and money to total 218,314 pounds (every dollar is considered the equivalent of five pounds of food). So there's still time if you would like to help fill the truck. Donations can be dropped off at all local Albertsons, Les Schwab and Western States Equipment locations.

Dump hunger this weekend

Most of us probably have a few stray items in our cupboards that we can part with. Maybe you bought something to use in a particular recipie that you never made. Or maybe you hit a really good sale and have more of something than you really need.

Several local business are teaming up with Second Harvest to attempt to fill a dump truck with donated food in a “Dump Hunger” campaign. A dump truck will be in place this weekend at the Albertsons at Trent and Argonne accepting donations. The truck will be there from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The truck holds 225,000 pounds of food, so fill those bags and bring them over.

If you can't make it over there this weekend, there will be food collection bins at all local Albertsons, Les Schwab and Western States Equipment locations through Feb. 7.
