MUSCLES NEEDED! Regular Tue./Wed. 10-noon volunteers who can lift 50 lbs. to help unload trucks and stock shelves. If you know anyone who is looking for some volunteer hours, please contact Debbie Price at 253-686-7578.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: To staff outreach events for FISH. This would require staffing a booth for the food bank at events such as The Taste of Tacoma, Art on the Ave., Proctor Farmer’s Market, etc. Your job would be to promote and answer questions about the food bank, interacting with the public. If you are interested, please talk to Cindy Stangl or call Debbie Price at the number below.
ITEMS NEEDED: Canned fruit/vegetables, peanut butter, tuna, chili, canned beans or low-fat refried beans, toilet paper, PLASTIC BAGS, rubber bands.
MONETARY DONATIONS: Please consider monetary donations to food bank. Checks can be made to St. Luke’s with “food bank” on the memo line. This allows you to receive the tax benefit of your donation. Remember that Monetary donations distribute SEVEN times the amount donated ($25 buys $175 worth of food). Thank you also to those who contribute to the coffee hour food bank collection. It’s always amazing to see how much comes in each week! Usually there is at least $25, which translates to $175 of purchasing power!
PLANTING FOR FISH: If you or your neighbors have too much produce this summer, send it over to food bank! They will also take the extra fruit from your fruit trees!
WAREHOUSE NEEDED: FISH is looking for additional warehouse space, preferably at low or no cost with refrigeration. A central location (i.e. Port of Tacoma, Lakewood or South Tacoma) is preferred. If you know of such a space, please contact Debbie Price at the number below.
Thank you to VBS for doing another food fortress challenge! The VBS classes donated 179 lbs of food as their service project for the week.
There is always room for volunteering! If there are scout troops, church/school groups or other organizations that you belong to, food bank is always grateful for FOOD DRIVES
