(Schools collect thousands of pounds of food)….It all goes to the Imperial Valley Food Bank.
The five High Schools, 3 Junior High Schools and 13 elementary schools spent the last few weeks leading up to Christmas collecting food. They donated a total of 10,315 pounds of food to the local Food Bank. The mostly canned goods were distributed to families across the Imperial County. Some were used in food distributions, some was delivered to shelters, soup kitchens and other forms of disbursement. The Food Bank expects more donations following the New Year’s Holiday. Several musical concerts are planned, and each will collect canned food items for the Imperial Valley Food Bank.
