Since November 24, owners and customers of the Moscow Food Cooperative have donated $ 7,740 worth of food to a local food bank through the Moscow Food Cooperative Community Fund Food Movers, according to a news release from the shop.
The drive was made in response to the anticipated need for food and groceries in the community during the holiday season, the release said. The cooperative makes pre-bagged food donations of $ 10, $ 20, and $ 50 available for customers to purchase and donate. Donation bags can be purchased off the shelf or through cooperative e-commerce websites and curbside delivery services.
Once purchased, the bags are handed over to the local food bank for distribution. Charitable organizations that receive and distribute $ 7,740 in food donations include: Food Not Bombs, The Troy / Deary Food Bank, Sojourners’ Alliance, Safari Pearl Food Drive, Palouse Cares and Vandal Food Pantry.
