HUMBOLDT COUNTY (KIEM) – one of the biggest problems many residents faced during the ongoing power shut offs? Loss of food. But despite the lack of power, Food for People still kept their operations going.
The organization kept all programs up and running. The food bank managed to keep most of their foods, thanks to generators and consolidating supplies. They had their Mobile Produce Pantry up in Klamath and Manila.
Executive Director Anne Holcomb says, it was important to keep operations going because so many people would be impacted by the loss of power.
During the first round of shut offs, Food for People says they experienced some losses but thanks to the advanced notice for the October 26 shutoffs, they were able to plan ahead.
