Rep. Young in Fairbanks to Meet With Food Bank

Rep. Young in Fairbanks to Meet With Food Bank

                                                          

Alaskan Congressman Don Young will be in Fairbanks this Thursday to meet with Ms. Samantha Castle Kirstein, Executive Director, Fairbanks Food Bank regarding his recent work on their behalf to help them obtain authorization to utilize excess food from the local Military bases.

According to the Department of Defense (DOD), regulations prevented them from allowing food banks to pick up excess food and often times the food was thrown out. After working tirelessly with the DOD and the Fairbanks Food Bank, Rep. Young was successful in simplifying the regulatory process and finding a common sense solution to this problem. The Fairbanks Food Bank is now authorized to pick up excess food from the Military bases.
