Did you see this article in which more families are going without enough food? This is not news to us. We have seen the rise in families using our food bank. But we live in such a generous community that we have been able to meet the need. We hope that soon the ecomony picks up, people find jobs and are able to meet their finaincial needs. Until then, we will remain open to help those who need it.
Help us keep our food bank stocked with nutritious food! FamilyWorks is looking for volunteers to help with food drives at two local grocery stores. Duties include handing out flyers and placing donated food into bins. The following dates and times are available. We ask that volunteers commit to 1-2 hour shifts.

Thanks to CAMP for highlighting the affects on the poor of the proposed Seattle 20-cent bag fee. Our clients will be affected the same way.
At FamilyWorks we rely heavily on volunteer support to nourish and strengthen families at the food bank and resource center. If this inspires you, please contact Kate to learn about the volunteer openings at FamilyWorks.
