Western States CAT, Albertsons and Wells Fargo recognized a need in their communities, so they stepped up.
The organizations teamed up with YOU for the sixth year of the “Dump Hunger” holiday food drive, raising 621,804 pounds of food across the intermountain northwest. That was 150,000 pounds more than their goal, enabling them to pass a check along to The Idaho Foodbank for about 100,000 pounds of food.
Dump Hunger benefited communities throughout the Intermountain West region, providing critical food and monetary donations to many more local food banks and those they support. The final total includes a contribution of $10,000 from Albertsons and a $20,000 donation from Wells Fargo. Western States added a $13,000 dollar match.
All donations went to participating food bank partners involved with Dump Hunger, many of which coordinate with additional community food bank partners in their network to share much needed resources with families in the surrounding communities.
