Greenwood Market’s final food bank donation

February 8th, 2012 · No Comments

After closing its doors for good last Saturday night, the Greenwood Market made its final donation to the Greenwood Food Bank. Food Bank Program Manager Patty Leach said Greenwood Market’s final donation was 1,186 pounds.

Greenwood Market had been a staunch supporter of the food bank for years, donating more than 183,000 pounds last year alone, averaging nearly 4,000 pounds per week.

Greenwood Market closed because neighboring Fred Meyer is expanding. Fred Meyer previously told PhinneyWood that its new grocery section would also donate to the Greenwood Food Bank. Fred Meyer will close on Feb. 25 and plans to reopen sometime in the late fall.
