River Bend Food Bank Receives WHLF Donation

Posted: Updated:

 

River Bend Food Bank is getting a thousand dollars from our Women's Health and Lifestyles Fair.    
We collected donations at the door for this money, which will be used for the backpack program at Riverbend, helping 1,700 Quad City students.

"This package of food is what makes the difference between whether a child experiences hunger on the weekend and we feel that if we put this together with the school breakfast and lunch that likely the child is not going hungry through the year," said Caren Laughlin, River Bend Foodbank Marketing Director.

Several Hy-Vee stores helped raise the money by selling reusable bags at the fair last month.
