The Legacy Food Bank, located in South Bend, has been serving the community in one capacity or another since 1985. Currently, Legacy provides food to over 300 families each month, for an average of 650 people. It is a much needed, and appreciated, service to those in need in our area.
Legacy is run by an all-volunteer Board who unfortunately, due to age and physical limitations, do not feel they can continue performing the tasks that are necessary to keep the food bank open. At this point we are hoping, and praying, that we can find others who are willing to take over the operation of the food bank.

David Tobin of Long Beach was recently appointed as a Pacific County Commissioner for south county to replace Frank Wolfe who resigned for health reasons. Tobin, who offered his time to be interviewed by the Herald, said he intends to be a candidate in the special election later this year. Tobin joins current Pacific County Commissioners Lisa Olsen and Jerry Doyle.
Tobin, 67, has a very diverse background. He has been married to his wife, Michelle, for 12 years. "Our kids are all grown and on their own (and) most are living in Washington, with two living in Oregon," Tobin said.
Tobin has a bachelor's degree from Washington State University and a master's degree in educational administration from Seattle Pacific University. Tobin worked for 41 years in education as a teacher, coach, and for the past 29 years as an administrator.
"As an administrator, I spent four years as an athletic director, four years as an assistant principal and 21 years as a principal; the last 14 at Ilwaco High School," Tobin said. "I am excited about serving the people of Pacific County in my new role as county commissioner. While I know that serving as a county commissioner is certainly different from educational administration, I am finding that there are many similarities."
