KHUM and Food for people are once again teaming up for the Holiday Spirit Food and Fund Drive!! Beginning this coming Monday we'll be out broadcasting all over Humboldt County at the following supermarkets:
- Monday, Dec. 5 ENF McKinleyville - Cliff from 6 AM till 10 AM
Tuesday, Dec. 6 NC Coop Eureka - Bayley from 10 AM till 2 PM
Wednesday, December 7 Wildberries Arcata - Cliff from 6 AM till 10 AM
Thursday, December 8 Grocery Outlet Fortuna - Larry from 2 PM till 6 PM
- Friday, December 9 ENF Eureka - Cliff, Bayley, Larry, Amy from 6 AM till 7 PM
In addition, a representative from Food For People will be on location all day long calling into the station encouraging listeners to come out and give what they can, food or funds.
Food For People, the Food Bank for Humboldt County and its associated food pantries feed about 20,000 of our friends and neighbors who don't have enough to eat. Remember, the vast majority of food recipients are working members of our community who are just having trouble making ends meet. So many of us are just a medical emergency or car breakdown away from needing their services as well.
This is a part of the Food For People's month-long annual Holiday Spirit Food and Fund Drive. When we come to your community, please be generous with food and or funds to help out fellow community members who are a little less fortunate.

Southern Humboldt's new Reggae band, Irie Rockers came into the KHUM studio on Sunday afternoon to play their fun, original music and talk about their new album and upcoming gig at the Jambalaya on December 15th. These folks certainly live up to their band name and put it out there: They want to play more in our community and are looking for opportunities to share their music.
Cyrus Wong-Weissman (bass), Brian Sykes (guitar), Brody Forester (guitar/vox), Stevie Culture (drums/vox), April Mae (vox)
