Oregon Section IFT December Dinner Meeting
The Oregon IFT dinner meeting on December 13th was quite a successful event – measured by the number of registered attendees (87 in total!), as well as the total amount of food and money raised for the Oregon Food Bank. The SPI Group contributed a large food & fruit basket for the raffle and canned food for the Oregon Food Bank. The speaker gave a course on making German Christmas cookies.
In total, OSIFT raised $3,500 in cash and checks and an amazing 289 pounds of food!! Sarah Schirmer of the Oregon Food Bank estimates that the contribution will help close to 1,500 people (1/3 of which are children) who will receive emergency food boxes this winter.
