"Stuff the Bus" - Community Food Drive 2014 - 13,585 lbs. of food donated!

Thank you to all who contributed and assisted in this year's food drive effort in Meridian to support the Whatcom Co. Food Bank. The donated food and money was delivered on a Meridian school bus this morning at Haggen in Ferndale.  The donation nearly filled the trailer from the food bank.

The totals for donations this year are below:

2,248 lbs of food collected from the schools.
5,000 lbs of potatoes donated by Hawley Farms.
2,800 lbs of apples donated by Bellewood Acres.

$500 donated by Coast Line Equipment.
$500 donated by Blue Star Welding.

$100 donated by Edin Coffee (Shots 2 Go)

$668.06 in cash and checks.  
(Each dollar donated can buy two pounds of food).

The grand total this year is the equivalent of 13,585 lbs of food donated. 
We live and work in a generous community.

Thank you to our classified staff for coordinating the drive again this year.
Well done Meridian!
