EWU Helps Food Bank

Cash donations roll in...Community Food Drive

CHENEY, Wash. - The annual Eastern Washington University community food drive generated more than two tons of food (5,352 lbs.) and $13,684 for the Cheney Food Bank, Cheney Outreach and Spokane's 2nd Harvest.

Of the total cash donations, more than $6,400 will go to the Cheney Food Bank, and along with the food donations, will go a long way toward stocking the shelves to meet the high demand. Cheney Food Bank director John Matthews says the money raised represents half of his yearly budget.

Another $4,620 will go to the backpack for food program for Communities in Schools of Spokane County. This will provided 28 children with a weekend backpack filled with food, and is part of a nationwide effort to reduce the dropout rate and help kids in need.

Donations generated during the food drive will also benefit 2nd Harvest Inland Northwest and Cheney Outreach, which will receive nearly 80 backpacks filled with school supplies for children this fall.

Co-Chair's Nadine Arévalo and Kathleen Warren credited the success of the food drive to the great community spirit during these difficult economic times.
