Community Food Bank receives huge donation

Gar Tootelian, Inc. handed over a check for more than $286,000 to Community Food Bank.

Tens of thousands of people in the Central Valley will not go hungry this year, thanks to a huge donation on Wednesday.

Gar Tootelian, Inc. handed over a check for more than $286,000 to Community Food Bank.

The money was raised earlier this year during the NewsTalk 580 KMJ Feeding Families Fund Drive with local agriculture company Gar Tootelian.

The company matched .50 cents for every dollar donated during KMJ's fund drive.

The giant check for $286,495.50 was handed over Wednesday morning.

Community Food Bank says it can provide 7 meals for every dollar donated and that this donation will help provide more than 2 million meals to needy Valley families.

Patty Hixson, KMJ's VP/GM said, ā€œIā€™m overwhelmed by the support of our community. We can always count on the generosity of our highly-valued KMJ listeners. A special thanks to Karen and Greg of Gar Tootelian for their massive contribution and the hard work of our talented on-air team.ā€
