As many of us gather with family and friends to share a meal over the holidays, there are some people in our region who struggle every day to have enough to eat. You can help make this time of year a little brighter for them by giving to the annual King County Holiday Food Drive.
Place your donations of non-perishable, pre-packaged food in the marked bins located in many King County buildings. Staff from Facilities Management will gather the donations for delivery to Northwest Harvest. This year’s food drive runs through December 15.
Though their network of 375 providers, Northwest Harvest supplies two million meals every month to people with food insecurity. Northwest Harvest is the only nonprofit food bank distributor that works across the entire state of Washington. Through Northwest Harvest, you can rest assured that your donations go to people in need at no cost to local food banks or their patrons. Last year, King County employees gave nearly 3,500 pounds of food to Northwest Harvest during the Holiday Food Drive.
If you have questions about the Holiday Food Drive, or need full bins emptied, please contact FMD at CustomerCareServices.FMD@kingcounty.gov or 206-477-9400.
Thank you in advance for your support of this worthwhile project so that all of our friends and neighbors can enjoy this season of giving.
