NEED FOOD? KBM Commissary expanding free-meal offerings Saturday

The photo is from Keith Mathewson of Delridge’s KBM Commissary, whose resident food truck/catering chefs will continue their weekly free-meal distribution this weekend, and it’s expanding, as he explains:

The stay-home order has been extended and the strain on local families is becoming more acute. As a result the need for meals continues to increase. Last Sunday we produced 600 meals and ran out in under two hours. This week we will make 1000 meals and hand them out Saturday from 4 pm to 6 pm. Given the volume, two companies will be directing production; thankfully there are no shortage of volunteers in the kitchen.

*T’Juana Tacos will make 800 portions of Chicken Fajatias with Gallo Pinto

*Go Seattle Catering will produce 200 Bahn Mi Sandwiches.

We are asking people not to arrive too early as the cars are beginning to back up around the block and onto Delridge Way. There are now 3 people handling the distribution and are able to keep the line moving once we open.

I wish to thank all who are donated. The level of demand has become much greater than anticipated and without the communities support we would not have been able to meet a demand of this size.

KBM is at 5604 Delridge Way SW. Mathewson has been underwriting the project but help is welcome – here’s the crowdfunding page. Meantime, some of the KBM-based businesses are also selling from the window, as noted last month, and are part of our ongoing West Seattle list.

    Such great people, doing such great work. Every time I feel hopeless because of the awful people who make this crisis so much worse, I should remind myself of this article and these folks, and folks like them. And I love that clever social distancing shovel idea! That’s brilliant.
