Day of Concern for Hungry benefits Greenwood Food Bank

September 1st, 2010 · No Comments

Sept. 25 is the Mayor’s Day of Concern for the Hungry. You can donate to the food drive at several area grocery stores, with all food collected going to the Greenwood Food Bank.

From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sept. 25, make a donation at:

  • Greenwood Market – 8500 3rd Ave. NW
  • Greenwood Safeway – 8704 Greenwood Ave. N.
  • Green Lake PCC – 7504 Aurora Ave. N.
  • Shoreline Central Market – 15505 Westminster Way N.

The Greenwood Food Bank is run by the Volunteers of America. They need volunteers from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. to help collect food at the stores and bring it back to the food bank. If you’re interesting in volunteering for a three-hour shift, contact Erin Pankow at epankow@voaww.org (425) 259-3191.

Each month, the Greenwood Food Bank serves over 3,000 individuals. Families, children, seniors, and individuals with disabilities receive a 3 day/9 meal emergency supply of food. The Greenwood Food Bank also provides homebound seniors with monthly deliveries of food.

Donations are accepted at the Greenwood Food Bank Tuesday – Friday, 9am-4pm 9041 Greenwood Ave N, Seattle, WA 98103. Or, make an online donation at www.voaww.org. For each dollar donated, the Greenwood Food Bank can purchase six meals.
