On Wednesday, Carmike Cinemas presented two checks to The Poverello Center and the Missoula Food Bank. The funds were raised during the grand opening of Carmike's 'Big D' cinema off North Reserve. I spoke with Missoula Food Bank Community Relations Director Jessica Allred, Executive Director of the Poverello Center Erin Fowler, and Carmike City Manager Curt Howard about the check presentations.

Both checks were for $5,243.47. My interviews with Ms. Allred, Mr. Howard and Ms. Fowler are below.
