The Food Bank is Stepping Up to the Challenge!

The Food Bank is Stepping Up to the Challenge!

The Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, a member of the Feeding America network,  is partnering with the TV show The Biggest Loser to inspire people through the Pound for Pound Challenge to do something good for themselves and good for their community by pledging either to lose up to 50 pounds or to maintain a current healthy weight.

pound for pound challengeWe are so fortunate to have Patti Anderson, a wonderfully inspiring local lady as our Pound for Pound Challenge Champion. Patti was a contestant on The Biggest Loser episode 9 and despite being voted off early she was determined not to let that early dismissal derail her from her “get healthy” goal. If you would like to join us and the thousands of other local residents to “Lose Nationally, Feed Locally” we would love to have your support. Participation is easy, all you need to do is sign up and pledge your weight loss goals at www.pfpchallenge.com. For every pound you pledge, the Pound for Pound Challenge will donate 11 cents to Feeding America – enough to deliver one pound of groceries to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano. The more sign ups and pledges a food bank has from its area, the more funds it receives.
