The Rock Island District participated in the 2012 "Feds Feed Families" food drive in August. The Rock Island Arsenal and Soldiers from the U.S. Army Sustainment Command distributed collection cans, picked-up the donations and in total delivered more than 3,000 pounds of food to the River Bend Foodbank in Moline, Ill.

     The Rock Island District led the way contributing 1,428 pounds to the food drive. Lt. Col. Todd Reed, deputy commander, challenged each of the offices to see who could collect the most food to help support the community. With an astounding 981 pounds - Engineering and Construction was the winner.

     “Thanks for everyone’s contributions towards this community effort and helping those we serve,” said Reed.

    The River Bend Foodbank services the Quad Cities and 22 counties in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois providing thousands of nutritious meals to those in need every week. More information can be found at www.riverbendfoodbank.org.
