October Food Access Update

The money raised will be put toward the upcoming Winter & Spring Pantry programs that provides elementary school students and their families in the Mount Baker School District with breakfast and lunch foods that children can prepare for themselves during school breaks.

Thank you, Tracy and Patricia!
"One goal of the Foothills Food Bank Board of Directors has been to increase the amount of nutrient dense foods like fresh vegetables, fruits and protein sources. As a result of our partnership with Christ the King Church in Bellingham, we have received tens of thousands of pounds of fresh produce and fish over the past year. Thanks to Tracy and Patricia for delivering all these great foods to the Foothills Food Bank and helping to improve the quality of foods offered at the weekly distribution."
- Cheryl Thompson, Foothills Food Bank Board President
