Every dollar donated to the Auburn Food Bank is being matched by Coastal Farm and Ranch with a goal of raising enough to feed more than 1,500 people.

“Our store fortunate to be part of a such a terrific community,” said Nikki Somers, store manager of Coastal in Auburn. “This is our opportunity to give back and support the less fortunate families and hard working people in need of a good meal.”

Coastal is matching every dollar donated up to a $1,000, meaning the Auburn Food Bank will receive $2,000.

The public can make cash doantions directly to the Auburn Food Bank at 930 18th Place NE or online at theauburnfoodbank.org. All donations need to include Coastal Match in the designation box section.

Sound Publishing, publisher of the Auburn Reporter, has partnered with both organizations to promote the campaign. Sound Publishing is providing free ads in its newspaper, which distributes almost 24,000 copies per week through the local community.

“We appreciate the support of Coastal Farm and Ranch,” said Auburn Food Bank Director Debbie Christian. “This time of year we have plenty of families and individuals in need and this donation will make a big difference.”

The Auburn Food Bank is able to purchase food at a substantial discount. $2,000 will purchase approximately 4,000 pounds of food to feed hungry people in the Auburn area.

The matching program ends Dec. 14 or when the full $2,000 has been raised.
