Industrial Credit Union, Haggen and the Cascade Radio Group are together holding the 17th annual Feed the Need Community Food Drive.
Cash and food donations are being accepted now at all Industrial Credit Union branches. They will also be accepted at all Bellingham and Ferndale Haggen stores between Oct. 15-19.
Donations can also be made at the Oct. 10 football game between Sehome High School and Squalicum High School, which takes place at 7 p.m. at Civic Stadium in Bellingham (donations will be accepted prior to the game).
One in six Whatcom County households receive support from a food bank, according to the food drive’s organizers.
In 2011, food banks in Whatcom County distributed more than 500,000 pounds of food each month.
