Help Greenwood Food Bank at Safeway

July 16th, 2011 · No Comments

Northwest Harvest is teaming up with Safeway stores to collect food for local food banks through July 24.

Through “Every Bag Counts,” Safeway customers can purchase a pre-packed bag for $10, and that food will go directly to a food bank in that community.

“Summer hunger is a reality for many families across the state,” Northwest Harvest’s Executive Director Shelley Rotondo said in a press release. “Children can’t access free or reduced-cost meals at school, summer feeding programs are stretched thin and the recession continues to impact many people including those who never thought they’d be standing in line at a food bank.”
