2005 Great Holiday Food Drive
December 12th - 22nd, 2005
Equivalent of 10,421 lbs of Food Raised!

Benefiting
Thanks to all those who participated and donated to the 5th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive. The 5th Annual Event was a tremendous success, raising 10X the amount of food raised during last year's Annual Food Drive! The event raised the equivalent of 10,421 lbs of food. There were 3,449 lbs of food raised, and $1,162.00 cash (which will buy approximately 6,972 lbs of food at 6 lbs per dollar) for a grand total of 10,421 lbs!

The event was a collaboration to raise food and awareness for the hungry here in the Portland Metropolitan Area and consisted of 20 different Drop Site Locations throughout the Portland Metro Area. In addition, two Benefit Concerts were held the last day of the food drive to celebrate and enjoy live music and food in a last ditch effort to raise food for the Oregon Food Bank. Our thanks go out to the following for supporting the Benefit Concerts:
