Full Circle Donates to the Alaska Food Bank
Thanks to the great turnout for Full Circle‘s Harvest Moon Food Challenge, we were able to donate 1,000 pounds of food to the Food Bank of Alaska last week. Like the deliveries I wrote about last week to Food Lifeline and the Recovery Cafe, this was another great opportunity to get fresh, healthy food into the hands of those in need.
The Food bank of Alaska provides food for an estimated 74,000 different people annually and an average of 15,000 different people receive assistance from the program on a weekly basis. Food Bank of Alaska has partner agencies across the state that help them distribute food and ensure that all communities have access to their services. Donations from individuals and farms like Full Circle, as well as food drives and community support help fund and ensure the success of the program.
Full Circle has worked with the Food Bank of Alaska in the past, donating the food that remains after our regional delivery and generating additional donations through holiday drives. A partner like this helps ensure that none of the food grown or distributed by Full Circle goes to waste, and all of it reaches thankful individuals.
