On behalf of the hundreds of families who have been helped by Benson Area Food Bank the past year, the volunteers thank the many organizations and individuals who have made this possible through food drives and monetary donations.
Thanks to Benson Rotary Club for its donation to fund our holiday gift card program and Safeway for their continued support with food donations throughout the year with holiday turkey dinners and “No Child Goes Hungry” bags. Other generous organizations include City of Benson, Benson Hospital, Benson Unified School District, SKP Park, G&T Cooperatives, Circle K, Coca-Cola, Sundt Foundation, Midwest Food Bank, and the 3000 Club for their food drives and donations. The local churches, RV parks, businesses and individuals have been extremely generous with both food drives and donations. Without all your support, we would be unable to provide this assistance to our neighbors.
Benson Area Food Bank is funded entirely by private donations and grants with 95 percent of these cash donations spent on food and purchased locally. We are 501(c)(3) organization of dedicated volunteers helping to keep food on the table five days a week, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. As a local organization serving our local community, we are truly “Neighbors helping neighbors.”
