Food Bank working to meet Hunger Awareness Day fundraising goal

Posted: Updated:

The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County says it is still working to meet its $135,000 goal for this year's Hunger Awareness Day campaign.

The Food Bank says $100,000 was raised for the 10th annual event by the end of Friday when donation sites were set up across the county. They hope to raise the remaining amount by the end of the month.

Every dollar donated provides $10 worth of nutritious food. The Food Bank says one in six residents in San Luis Obispo County face hunger.

Organizers say a little more than $130,000 was raised during last year's event.
