Losing Weight, Gaining A Sense Of Community
They're going pound for pound in a weight loss effort that matches pounds lost, with food donated.
Bread of the Mighty Food Bank picked up two pounds of donated food from the Weight Watchers center in Thornebrook Village.
Members have collected non-perishable goods since September as part of the, "Loose for Good Campaign."
This is the second year the weight loss program has partnered with the food bank and both parties say the effort helps everyone lead healthier lives.
Weight Watcher members lost 3200 pounds and donated 2264 pounds of food.
That amount of food can be used by Bread of the Mighty Food Bank to feed forty families for four days.
