The University District Food Bank’s 16th Annual “Take a Bite out of Hunger” auction was their most successful ever – raising $125,000 between ticket sales, item sales, and sponsorship. Congrats to them!
The U-District Food Bank serves over 1,100 families each week and in 2010 distributed over 2.2 million pounds of food. They serve ZIP codes 98102, 98103, 98105, 98112, 98115 and 98125 – that’s a lot of mouths to feed!
The auction may be over but University District Food Bank takes donations year-round, and things tend to get slow around the holidays. If you’d like to give, you can donate online here.
