Palm Beach County Food Bank supporters came together for an evening of celebration sponsored by Marti LaTour, chairwoman of the agency, and George Elmore, who welcomed guests with cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres. LaTour shared accomplishments from the past season and goals for the future, pointing out that the issue of hunger continues to grow. ‘According to the Palm Beach County commissioners’ study, there is a 78-million-pound gap here in our county from what we currently distribute to what is actually needed,’ she said. Added Executive Director Karen Erren: ‘When we think of Palm Beach County, we think about a lot of things, but we don’t always realize that there are almost 200,000 people in our county that don’t know when they will get their next meal.’
