Special thank you to Crystal Harley-Davidson!

318 pounds of food and more than $2500 was collected during their recent month-long food drive for Community Food Bank. The 1000-mile Annual IBA Saddle Sore riders enjoyed a picture-perfect tour while helping to feed the community. Pictured are Amy Moodie and Dennis Dickard.


Nevan Breder an Eagle Scout from BSA Troop 452 completed 3 micropantry boxes and installed at CFB Life Tree Presbyterian Church and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. The pantries allow those in need access to food 24/7.

Here is another easy way to help feed your neighbors in need.

The Community Food Bank was selected by store leadership at the Winn-Dixie located at 1202 West Main Street, Inverness FL to receive a $1 donation every time a $2.99 reusable Community Bag is purchased at this location during the month of October.

So, the next time you’re shopping at the Winn-Dixie in Inverness, be sure to purchase a reusable bag and join the fight to end hunger and nourish hope!

Thank you to Reporter Fred Hiers at the Citrus County Chronicle for shedding light on this important and timely topic.

Community Food Bank Selected to Benefit from Winn-Dixie Floral Program for the Month of August

Brighten someone’s day with a bouquet of flowers while helping to fight hunger throughout our community. The Community Food Bank (CFB) has been selected by local Winn-Dixie store leadership as the benefiting non-profit in the Winn-Dixie Bloomin’ 4 Good Program for the entire month of August. 

The Winn-Dixie Bloomin’ 4 Good Program is an easy way for people to give back as part of their regular shopping routine. Every $12.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet with the red circle sticker sold supports a local non-profit. The CFB was selected as the  beneficiary for August by local store leadership at the Winn-Dixie stores located at 333 Highland Boulevard, Inverness, FL and 1651 Southeast Highway 19, Crystal River, FL. The CFB will receive a $1 donation for every $12.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet purchased at these Winn-Dixie locations during the month of August.

“Flowers can make someone’s day, brighten up a room, and spread smiles,” says Barbara Sprague, Executive Director of the CFB. “Now, each bouquet you purchase will give back, too.”
