A local non-profit organization made huge gains in helping feed the hungry.
The Chico Food Project held its bi-monthly food drive Saturday at the Jesus Center. Hundreds of donors brought in thousands of food items. It will all be distributed to local food pantries which will help feed an estimated 2,000 people in need.
“For some at-risk families, it's the difference between paying their PG&E bill and eating that month,” said Wendy Smith, Chico Food Project co-founder. “It’s huge for those that need it.”
These food drives take place on the second Saturday of every month.
