Food Bank raises thousands

(I.V. Food Bank Fundraiser)….It was held Sunday at the Brunswick Bowling Alley.

Organizers say it was better than ever. They were very pleased with the turnout. 25 teams of 5 players each participated, including one team from San Diego. The Allied Healthcare of San Diego team was special because Allied had already provided a $25,000 grant to the Food Bank. Officials did not give an exact number, but they said thousands were raised, and the event gave the local Food Bank invaluable publicity. They said food insecurity in the Imperial Valley was still at 27% and child hunger is at 44%.
