It’s March, which means Feinstein Challenge time – your donations to the two food banks serving West Seattle go further! This news release sent by White Center Food Bank executive director Rick Jump explains, on behalf of the WS Food Bank as well:
The White Center Food Bank and West Seattle Food Bank are encouraging community members to make donations between March 1st and April 30th so they can receive additional funds from the Feinstein Foundation’s $1 Million Challenge.
For the past 12 years Rhode Island philanthropist Alan Shawn Feinstein has made $1 Million available to help anti-hunger agencies. For every cash and food donation received by the end of April the Feinstein Foundation will add a financial contribution.
“During these tough economic times local food banks are serving more families than ever. Many of them are first time visitors to a food bank,” said Rick Jump, executive director of the White Center Food Bank. “This increased demand for services is likely to continue over the next several months and we urgently need to support of the community to insure that we are able to provide nutritious meals to our neighbors in need,” said Jump.
