The West Seattle Thriftway (WSB sponsor) is cooking up brats ($5, includes chips and drink) to raise money for the West Seattle Food Bank, till 4 pm, and also collecting food. As Thriftway’s master barbecuer Michele (at left, with co-worker Reid and Franz Bakery’s Anna) reminds us, now that it’s summertime, kids are especially vulnerable to hunger – no school breakfast/lunch – so be sure to donate food they’d like and need. Just look for the tent in front of the store (California/Fauntleroy/Morgan).
There’s a bake sale as well as grilled burgers and hot dogs – don’t miss the piña colada cupcakes, with which Fran and Alice posed! This barbecue is on till 3 pm at 4501 Delridge Way SW, right in front of the community center; the money raised goes toward scholarships so more youth can join in programs at the center.
