AFA food drive will feed thousands

The Air Force Academy Football Coaches Wives' Annual Food Drive held Saturday was an amazing success. Care & Share received 7,800 pounds of food and $4,872 in cash. To put this into perspective, this is twice as much food donated this year compared to last year and $4,500 more in cash!

Care & Share can provide 28,475 individual meals or feed a family of four - three meals a day - for 4 ½ years, according to Nancy Hixson, Assistant Athletic Director of Development.

News First 5 was a proud sponsor of the food drive.
