Many folks in Lincoln county work hard but still have a difficult time making ends meet. This time of year is especially tough for families when hours are cut and we head into the holiday season. That is why KNPT AM 1310 and KYTE FM 102.7 Radio are once again teaming up with Coastal Farm and Ranch supply to raise needed funds for Food Share of Lincoln county. All funds collected help food share to provide food to the pantries and other programs that they serve. There are food share pantries located in Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, Siletz, Toledo, Newport and Waldport. They also provide food to other organization that help others in Lincoln County such as the produce plus program. This is open every Friday and offers extra produce and foods to those in need.
They also help to supply food for the back pack and snack pack programs for hungry students in Lincoln County. You can make a difference in the lives of your local friends and neighbors in Lincoln County by making a monetary donation today. The money raised also helps Food Share to help those in need and make it through the slower donations times after the holidays. Food Share can distribute more food to the network of pantries and partner agencies through a purchasing partnership with Oregon Food Bank. Just $1 can provide 3 meals or approximately 5 lbs. of food to an individual, senior or family in need. Coastal Farm and Ranch supply will match every dollar raised up to $1,000. If we can reach that mark, that will give Food Share$2,000.
