Litehouse collecting food donations for food bank

By Reader Staff

Litehouse employee-owners will be collecting food donations for the Bonner Community Food Bank at Super 1 Foods in Sandpoint on Saturdays, Oct. 17 and Oct. 24, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both dates. 

After a successful food drive last year, which collected thousands of pounds of food for the community, the Litehouse team wanted to continue the tradition. With many area families struggling due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the food bank has a high demand for items — especially around the holidays. 

Litehouse team members will be handing out lists of food bank needs along with grocery bags to fill outside the entrance to Super 1. As shoppers check items off their own grocery lists, they are able to purchase additional items for donation. In addition to the food donation, Super 1 shoppers are also able to make a monetary donation directly to the food bank at the checkout. Use code 7545 at checkout to donate $5 to the food bank.
