We just received the following email from Lisa Lehman, Director of Happiness at Thogus Products.

A BIG thank YOU to everyone for their participation in our 2nd annual FOOD Fight.  The real winner is the Second Harvest Food Bank!  Julie Chase-Morefield explained last night that the need has not diminished and shared her sincere appreciation for every meal donated.  Over 140,000 meals collected will make an enormous impact in our communities and we thank each of you for your time and effort!!!  Second Harvest has provided Certificates of Appreciation for each of you which will be delivered in the upcoming week (from Thogus) for you to proudly display.
