MEDFORD, Ore. -- Sherm's Thunderbird Markets is helping ACCESS fill its warehouse and feed families in need.

They dropped off about 20 palettes of food at the warehouse Thursday morning. That's nearly 30,000 pounds that will go out to Jackson County families in need. This is the 19th year the grocery chain has delivered food to ACCESS.

"It's just something we think we should do for the community. The community has been good to us. Everyone has supported our stores and so it's our way of giving back to the community. We do the food banks in Roseburg and in Klamath Falls also," said Sherm's Thunderbird Markets owner Steve Olsrud.

ACCESS said this donation will be able to feed thousands of families this holiday season.

"Immediately that 30,000 pounds of food is enough to feed, I would say, probably about 6,000 people with about a 4 to 5 day supply of food," said ACCESS's Nutrition Programs Director Philip Yates.

Yates added the large donation will help through the early months of the new year. He hopes this donation will inspire others to donate however they can.
