The outpouring of love and support for our neighbors has been truly humbling. We are so honored to be helping and so thankful to all of our donors and dedicated volunteers. Specific needs as of Friday April 11th are cash, gift cards (Target, Walmart) and gas cards (Shell). At the request of authorized personnel in Oso, Arlington and Darrington, our mission is to purchase perishable items like butter, eggs, milk and yogurt to be delivered directly to them. 100% of funds donated to our Food Bank earmarked for ‘Oso’ will be directly used for these efforts. Thank you for all you have done and for continuing to help for our #OsoStrong friends and neighbors.

Food Lifeline recognized our tireless efforts with their 2014 Excellence In Collaboration Award. Noticing the thousands of Campbell’s Labels for Education and Box Tops for Education labels that come through the Food Bank, we created a program to ensure each and every label was collected. In 2013, over 23,000 were donated to local schools to help them purchase much needed school supplies. Throughout the year, the Snohomish School District hosts fund raisers and food drives to benefit the Food Bank. This innovative, collaborative approach exemplifies the spirit of giving and leading by example. We are so honored!
