The Snohomish Community Food Bank is again a point of donations for the communities of East of the mountains. Financial donations will be used to purchased foods perishable in nature, as canned and dry goods are the most donated products. We are working with the Entiat Valley Community Services and Entiat Regional Health Clinic. You can send you check to P. O. Box 1364, Snohomish, WA 98291 or use PayPal through our website: www.snohomishfdbank.org. Make the check out to SCFB and note that the funds are for the “Wildfire Victims”.
Other requested contributions are: medical supplies, school clothing and supplies, toiletries, hygiene items (including shampoos, dental cleansers, feminine napkins, razors, diapers for adults, babies, and toddlers), and gas cards for people affected by Wildfires living in Chelan and Okanogan counties.

All area kids age 18 and younger are invited to join us again this summer at our Kids’ Café summer breakfast and lunch program. There is no pre-registration or sign-up. Kids just need to show up and enjoy a great breakfast and/or lunch. Make sure you also keep a lookout for the Book Café in a neighborhood near you! The Book Café has partnered with the Kids’ Café to deliver free books for students to read throughout the summer. Both programs are free! Locations and times can be found here. Thank you to the Tulalip Tribes and Bickford Motors for helping fund these incredible programs.
The 2014 National Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive filled our Food Bank with over 21,000 pounds of food!! From dawn until dusk, 73 volunteers and team volunteers from Fred Meyer, Kohl’s and Target were equal to the challenge of receiving and sorting the bountiful donations. One yellow bag may have seemed like a small amount, but combined with the other generous offerings from kind-hearted neighbors like you, we are stronger than ever in our fight to end hunger. Our warmest thanks and gratitude go out to everyone in the Snohomish community who participated. Your community spirit is the key to our success. We would also like to thank our energetic volunteers and of course, our dedicated Letter Carriers, who make this great day of giving possible.
