A total of $72,526 in cash and 36.6lbs of food was collected for the Mustard Seed as a direct result of the 2020 VIATEC Foundation Food Bank Challenge that took place from November 16 to December 17, 2020. StarFish Medical, led by Trinity MacRae, was the Top Overall Contributor raising $21,193.
This brings the total 2020 value to $72,622.92, beating last year’s amount of $70,000. This year’s donations will be used to feed 1,700 families of four (or 6,800 individuals) for one month through the Mustard Seed Food Bank.
“It’s been a particularly tough year for many in our community and it is a privilege to witness and support our members in doing what they can to give back and support those that need it the most,” said Dan Gunn, CEO of VIATEC.
