Last Year’s Food Bank Challenge Numbers
The previous Food Bank Challenge was in Fall 2013. We decided to move the event from November to February because it’s spring and summer when most people are in need – post-Christmas, food banks receive less donations.
Here are our numbers from the last Challenge:
- Total Cash $81,297.22
- Total lbs of food is 3440 lbs. At $2.50/lb that is a $8600 value
- Total value food and cash is $89,897.22
- Grand total since 2002 is $1,633,354.22A
