During a monthlong food drive, St. Luke Community Healthcare employees recently collected 1,571 lbs. of non-perishable food and almost $1,000 to donate to the food banks in Ronan, St. Ignatius, and Polson. The donations help these essential community organizations keep essential holiday items on hand going into the holiday season.

The four-week interdepartmental competition has become a tradition for the organization and comes at an important time for local families. The drive focuses on holiday-related baking and cooking items, along with favorite holiday sides and snacks.

The top four departments to bring the most items and/or dollars were treated to a pizza party. In addition, each department crafted a donation box for the food and the department with the most creative box also received a pizza party.

St. Luke recognizes that food drives are important to local food banks and can help

provide food to the thousands of individuals they serve.

“Food security plays an important role in good health,” said St. Luke CEO Steve Todd. “I’m very proud of our 400 team members for finding yet another way to support their community. The local food pantries provide an invaluable service to their towns and supporting that cause brings out the best in us too.”
