WeDo Fudge its their annual peanut butter drive at the drive-thru fudge stand in August, to benefit the Sequim Food Bank.

To sweeten the effort, they gave each participant a free piece of fudge.

Thanks to the PUD joining their efforts, they collected and donated 342 pounds of peanut butter and $751, more than doubling the goal of 150 pounds.

WeDo Fudge thanks Sequim residents and employees of the PUD for supporting the food bank.

They thank the more than 50 volunteers at the Sequim Food Bank, who help ensure that the banks’ financial resources remain focused on their core mission of providing food to the hungry.

All funds donated to the Sequim Food Bank go towards helping distribute food to anybody within the Sequim School District that needs assistance. Annually, the food bank operates on about $200,000 in monetary donations, along with about $650,000 of in-kind food donations. It helps feed more than 2,100 families with the financial support of many thoughtful individuals, organizations, businesses, church congregations, and local foundations.

Contributions help ensure a steady supply of important basic foods, especially milk and eggs which are difficult to obtain via donation.
