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.
You might not remember what you did on Saturday May 9th…but you should! Your donation to the 23rd Annual Letter Carriers Food Drive helped collect 21,853 pounds of much needed food and $85.00 for the hungry in Snohomish. The Snohomish community has always been extremely generous delivering hope to neighbors in need and your participation is truly inspiring. The cans of soup, jars of peanut butter and boxes of cereal (just to mention a few) you donated will ensure our clients are fed year round. Thank you Snohomish for your incredible community spirit!
And an extra big thank-you to Kohl’s and Target for sending their employees to volunteer for the day!
For the past 4 years, Liberty Mutual has assembled a team of hard working employees to volunteer at the Food Bank and this year was no exception. 20 volunteers donated 90 hours, taking on the monumental task of power washing over 600 of our large plastic food storage crates and our fleet of grocery carts. Thank you Liberty Mutual! Your enthusiasm and dedication is sincerely appreciated.
Saturday May 9th is the 23rd annual Letter Carriers Food Drive. Also known as America’s great day of giving, it is the largest one day food drive in the country and it is so easy to help.
- Collect a bag of non-perishable food items like canned meats, fish, soup, juice, vegetables, pasta, cereal, peanut butter and rice.
- Place the bag by your mailbox on Saturday May 9th and your letter carrier will do the rest.
This day of action is vital to keeping our shelves full as donations tend to slow during the summer months. All donations will directly benefit the Snohomish Community Food Bank and begin feeding families immediately. SCFB and America’s Letter Carriers thank you for helping to Stamp Out Hunger!
The Bunko Night Fundraiser for the Food Bank was a huge success! We can’t thank the Sisters of Snohomish enough for hosting such a spectacular event. The funds donated will truly make a difference in our community.
