The Vashon Maury Community Food Bank is a community resource much like our library, fire station and medical clinic. It is supported by us, for us. Living on Vashon Island is expensive. Housing alone eats up a great deal of a family’s budget, and wages have not kept apace with the cost of living.
So please, even if you think, “Someone else needs it more than I,” consider stopping by, signing up and shopping at our warehouse. There are no barriers to using this service, and all are welcome. The food bank is located at 10030 SW 210th St. at the end of the road to the right and behind Neighborcare. Food distribution days and times will be changing and expanding on March 6. Please go to vashonfoodbank.org for information regarding distribution times (and see page 5 in this issue).
You may also call 463-6332 for more information, as well as information on home delivery. We hope to see you soon.
