Thank You For Making the 40th Year of #Food2Feed One For The Books!

Words cannot express how grateful we here at WHUR are to those who answered the call to help feed our DMV neighbors in need this Thanksgiving season. All donations, big and small, came from a place of love and care. 100% of the donations will go to those families in need.

None of this would have been possible without the help of our incredible sponsors including Howard University, Capital Area Food Bank, Wegmans, Shabach Ministries, SunTrust and the Howard University Radio Network.

We would also like to thank every individual or group that made a donation of any kind. There are just too many to list individually. With your help, we were able to raise over $35,000 in monetary donations along with thousands of pounds of canned goods and non-perishable food items.

A very special thank you goes out to our hardworking volunteers, on-air talent and WHUR staff members who worked tirelessly during our 12-hour radiothon. Shoutout to our awesome Howard University students who volunteered all day as part of the “bucket-brigade” collecting cash donations along Georgia Ave, NW.

Food2Feed has been in operation for 40 years and each year, we continue to be amazed by the great outpouring of support. You are the real MVPs!

 

 

If you missed the 12-hour radiothon Tuesday, you can still make a donation online at Food2Feed.org until November 21. Spread the word please. Let’s help as many people as we can!
