Many families in Washington state depend on food banks for their food security. Recently,  with businesses closing resulting in rising unemployment, many people are having to look to their local food bank for the very first time.  It has put an immediate additional strain on these small organizations doing their best, oftentimes with fewer volunteers. If you’re looking for a way to help, please consider a money donation (check) to one of the many food banks in the state. The money will be put to good use, and will also reduce face to face contact alleviating the need to deliver food on site. All food banks are non-profit organizations and can provide you with a tax-deductible receipt. You can find a complete list of the state’s food banks here.  

In addition, school districts are also working hard to help food insecure students continue to get meals. For information about whether you can help them with a food donation, including produce, contact WSPC’s Director of Marketing Brandy Tucker,
