Feeding American Delivers More Than 30,000 Pounds of Food to Sault Ste. Marie

Last week, Feeding America delivered 24,000 pounds of food to give away in Sault Ste. Marie and ran out of food before serving all those who attended.

On Thursday, Feeding America came through with an extra 12,000 pounds of food that was sorted, boxed and given to those who lined up at the Big Bear Arena.

“We are just thankful that we are able to get people who are willing to risk that to come out, because last week we had 10 people and today we have about 25 trying to pack these boxes,” third-year volunteer Jennifer Labonte said. “We just have to be very careful.”

685 households served on Thursday.
