From Majors Kris and Mary Ann Wood of Washtenaw County:
The Cracker Barrel in Belleville made a massive food donation to the Washtenaw County Corps Community Center on Wednesday, which included 170 chicken tenders, 10 logs of meatloaf, 230 pounds of chicken, 60 pounds of haddock, 2 cases of trout, 4 cases of sausage, 240 ounces of sirloin steak, 5 cases of fruit, 24 gallons of milk, 90 dozen eggs, 250 heads of cabbage, 19 cases of assorted vegetables, and 350 pounds of potatoes! We are so grateful for their generosity. We were able to distribute the food to our neighbors in need through our food distribution at the Corps Community Center and through our shelters.
