Local food bank receives $10,000 donation

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) Easter is this weekend and that means family feasts for many, but for some families Feed My People Food Bank is essential just to put food on the table. Today, Feed My People received over 10,000 dollars from Chilson Subaru in Eau Claire.

For the past five years people who bought a new Subaru from Chilson's have had the opportunity to donate 250 dollars to a local charity. This program is the Share the Love event. This year those donations totaled more than 10,000 dollars.

 Jeanne Chilson from Chilson Subaru said there is a specific reason why they chose Feed My People to receive the money this year.

"We picked Feed My People because of what they do and how many people that they serve. They serve not just people here in Eau Claire, but throughout our community," she said.

With the donation, the food bank will be able to provide 100,000 pounds of food for people in need.
