FOX44/ABC22 wrapped up our "Feed A Family" Campaign last night.

It was all to benefit the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf.

We were at the food shelf today as they unloaded all of the generous donations, and tallied the totals.

Our drive collected more than 7,000 pounds of food.

And $7,500 in cash!

That includes $5,000 from My Web Grocer.

Sophia Morton from the food shelf says the drive exceeded her expectations.

"The need at the food shelf is year round all the time but right now we’re getting these really horrible weather conditions and its getting colder and colder so people are choosing between paying for heat and paying for food."

The Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf feeds 12,000 people each year.

They tell us they can make one dollar stretch into 3 meals.

So the money we raised just in the last week will buy more than 22,000 meals.
