Food bank gets boost thanks to donors

Submitted by Nicole McNeely

The Food Bank of Nevada County’s Freitas-Nugent fundraising campaign recently wrapped up with matching donations amounting to $5,000. In gratitude, those who donated more than $100 received homemade jam, courtesy of the Freitas-Nugent Family. The campaign was spearheaded by Sarah Freitas and Lynne Nugent. Donations will help support the drive-thru distribution held by the food bank, which is currently feeding roughly 1,900 to 2,000 people each week. Pictured, from left, are Nicole McNeely, executive director for the Food Bank of Nevada County, and Sarah Freitas of Coldwell Banker Grass Roots Realty.
