BELLINGHAM – The annual Feed the Need Community Food Drive in Whatcom County collected 315,493 total pounds of food for area food banks this year, passing the previous record of 312,000 pounds set in 2012. The food drive supports the food banks of Whatcom County and is the largest food drive in the area. The Industrial Credit Union, Haggen Inc. and the Cascade Radio Group coordinate the effort. The drive was held Oct. 13-17, and included thousands of contributions from businesses, communities and residents. “Feed the Need is the largest food drive in our area and supports food banks across Whatcom County at a time when they are desperately short of food and funding,” said Mike Cohen, Bellingham Food Bank executive director, in a press release.
