Parish Food Drive - Ongoing

Canned food. Baby food. Staples like flour, sugar and cooking oil. Peanut butter and bread for kids’ lunches. Pasta. Chili. Salt. Anything. The soup you don’t have room for. The vegetables that were on sale. The cereal your baby doesn’t like. If it’s good food—unopened and unexpired—the Issaquah Food Bank really needs it. Families in crisis means pets in crisis—and a desperate need for pet food, too. Don’t let your neighbors go hungry tonight. Please give what you can. Food donations may be left in the Church, downstairs next to the elevators.
