Greenwood Christian Church is hosting a “Fill the Van” event from 12-3 p.m. on April 22, at 8018 Fremont Ave. N. Drop off non-perishable food and hygiene items.
Green Bean Coffee Shop, 8533 Greenwood Ave. N., is asking customers to bring in two non-perishable food items this month. Show them to the barista, and you’ll get $1 off your coffee.
Ken’s Market, 7231 Greenwood Ave. N., has a bin for non-perishable food and hygiene items.

According to the food bank, half of its clients are senior citizens and children, and 29 percent of people using food bank services have to choose between paying for food and paying for medicine or medical care.
