Last Friday, we loaded up two vehicles full of food, thanks to the team at Red Apple and there annual Thanksgiving Fundraiser. The Columbia Valley Food Bank saw at 48% increase in August alone, compared to the same time last year, in food bank use. Overall in 2023, a steady 24% increase in client access of our services continues. Community efforts like this make our jobs easier and the lives of so many valley residents so much healthier and stress free. No one should go with out food. If you need help, do not hesitate to ask. You can always give back when you are able!
