Big weekend for donating to food banks & having it count extra

Till the end of April, the Feinstein Challenge remains in effect for local food banks – which means your donations to the White Center Food Bank and West Seattle Food Bank, both of which serve areas of WS, count extra. We have two updates on ways you can help – first, just in from the WC Food Bank:

White Center Food Bank continues to serve record numbers of families. We gave food to 1,654 families which included 1,476 children and 1,323 seniors. With such a large demand, we are seeing a huge need for food donations. Most needed foods include canned meat, cereal, Hamburger Helper and Rice a Roni type products, peanut butter and canned fruit. Non-perishable foods and fresh produce from gardens is accepted Mondays through Fridays 8:30 to 5:00. We will also be open Saturday, April 21 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Food donations made from now until April 30 count bring a little extra bonus for the food bank as they count toward our Feinstein Million Dollar Challenge totals. Food can also be donated at barrels in the community at: A Place for Pets (Burien), Admiral Safeway, BECU (in Roxbury Safeway), Big Al’s Brewing, Café Rozella, and QFC Westwood Village.

Second, a reminder that tomorrow is the Kiwanis Club of West Seattle one-day food drive for the WS Food Bank. 9 am-3 pm, you’ll find Kiwanis and Key Club volunteers collecting food and monetary donations at several spots around West Seattle, including WSB sponsors Metropolitan Market and PCC Natural Markets in the Admiral District and West Seattle Thriftway in Morgan Junction.
