Bellingham Food Bank collects 65,000 pounds of food

The Bellingham Business Journal

The Bellingham Food Bank received approximately 65,000 pounds of donated food items on May 8 as part of its Stamp Out Hunger drive. Carriers and volunteers picked up donated food items from across Bellingham and brought them back to the food bank.

The food bank depends on the drive to fully stock itself for spring and summer. It has seen an increase in client visits over the past couple of years, distributing 2.3 million pound of food in 2009.
