Troop 192

A big round of applause for Troop 192 who volunteered as part of the Mt. Baker BSA Council Centennial Day of Service. They cleaned our sidewalks, loading dock, cargo trucks AND painted our entryway! Thank you so much Troop 192 for making the food bank shine!! We can’t wait for you to volunteer with us again.

A Ghoulish Good Time

We would like to thank Historic Downtown Snohomish for hosting their 4th annual Zombie Walk and Canned Food Drive. It was quite a sight to see zombies young and old lurching through the streets and we are so grateful to all of the “undead” who scared up 477 pounds of food to help feed the living. Thank you!

Project Harvest

You may have heard the term “gleaning” but what is it exactly? Gleaning is when volunteers harvest produce left behind in farm fields and donate it to local food banks. It prevents crops from going to waste and helps fresh, nutritious food reach people in need. Project Harvest is the largest, most productive gleaning program in Snohomish County. So far this year they have collected and distributed over 21,500 pounds of locally grown produce to area food banks. Outstanding!
