The Annual Ken DeRouchie Band Food Drive for the Oregon Food Bank:

Started in 2014, Ken and the band wanted to do something to help those less fortunate in their community. Ken spoke to small business and venue owners and got them to agree to host a food barrel in their location to collect food donations for the food drive. The results were the collection of 1,395 Lbs. of food in the first year!

In 2015, The total collected was 1,822 Lbs. of food plus $325.00 in fund donations.

Here's a letter from Kyle Hummel, Corporate & Community Relations Coordinator at Oregon Food Bank,

"So just so you know, here are the numbers compared to last year in terms of how we at OFB look at the impact from your efforts…might help with your perspective of it going up a little this year cause I would say it went up a lot:

The pounds I am seeing in the system from last year is a total of 1395 pounds which equals 1,163 meals that we can provide to the community. This year the totals are 1,822 which equals 1,518 meals but then you have to add the $325, which is another 975 meals! So your grand total of meals for this year is actually 2,493! So you have almost doubled the amount of meals that we can provide between last year and this year Ken! Pretty awesome when you think about it like that".
