PROVIDENCE EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION Christian AC WBSN (LIFESONGS 89.1)/NEW ORLEANS recently hosted a STRIKE OUT HUNGER event with TOOTH & NAIL band RUTH at ROCK N BOWL. Listeners donated over 1,000 pounds of canned goods and non-perishable food items at the free bowling event to benefit the local NEW ORLEANS chapter of SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK.
Since HURRICANE KATRINA, SECOND HARVEST FOOD BANK OF GREATER NEW ORLEANS has distributed over 52 million pounds of food and supplies. This rate of distribution since AUGUST 29, 2005, is almost four times greater than the entire distribution in the previous year. The food bank will continue this level of distribution to people returning to the NEW ORLEANS area in coming months.
