103rd Week Update - Miles Neighborhood Food Collection Project
We donated 13,299 lbs. of food in 2010.
In other words, at 1.3 lbs. per meal, · We donated 10,230 meals or · We fed 3,410 people three meals in one day.
Either way, we helped each other make a big difference. And just to compare, in 2009 we donated 9,203.5 lbs. That’s a 44.5% increase this year. Our cash contribution was impressive, too. The $2,654.70 amounted to $23,892.30 in Community Food Bank food and services based on their $1.00 = $9.00 ratio. In 2009 our cash donated was $1,953.38.
Thanks everyone, I am so proud to be your neighbor.
