    Litehouse Foods recently participated in a local fundraiser that supports children with autism and their families. The fundraiser was a bicycle fun ride coordinated by CHAFE 150 that benefitted the Lake Pend Oreille School District.  Litehouse Foods donated truck service; 108 bikes were picked up in Sandpoint, ID and gently transported 80 miles away to the starting point in Troy, Montana so that riders could begin the ride.
