In coordination with Senator Brian Dahle’s office and other community partners, the event utilized food boxes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture‚Äôs Farmers to Families Food Box program to distribute over 2,000 boxes of food. Each box weighed approximately 35 pounds and was filled with fruit, vegetables, dairy, and a protein. Badfish Coffee & Tea owners Mark Eister and Pearl Spencer, alongside property owner Cliff Wylie, opened up their parking lot for use by big rigs, forklifts, pallet jacks, and volunteers to pass out over 75,000 pounds of food. All of the equipment used was provided by Cliff Wylie, CEO of Ware House Interiors.
