The results are in! 
Joe McDonald, CEO of VEAP, reported food donations from the Richfield City-wide food drive totaling 13,166 lbs – more than 6.5 TONS of food!
In addition, the Richfield Rotary Foundation received donations totaling $1000.00, and a check will be presented to Joe McDonald at our meeting on Thursday.   
According to VEAP’s website, each dollar donated is comparable to 5 lbs. of food, or the equivalent of another 5000 lbs!
