Manna Food Pantries recently announced the results of the fourth annual âstop hungerâ donut strike in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. This year’s three-day strike raised 20,233 pounds of food and $ 21,582, the equivalent of 34,074 healthy meals.
The donut strike was born out of a joint effort by the Pensacola Police Department, Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, Pensacola Fire Department, Escambia County Fire Department, local businesses and the community to turn hunger into hope. With a leading view of hunger and its impact, first responders vowed to put the donuts down and do something to help, and the community supported their efforts.
In the spirit of the “community,” the Pen Air Federal Credit Union has once again joined the fight to turn hunger into hope by donating $ 10,000 toward the goal of 30,000 healthy meals.
