For I was hungry and
you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and
you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and
you invited me in.
The statistics are everywhere:
1 in 5 children in the United States are hungry.
If you put that into context here in our Valley, over 4000 children and youth are going home to bare cupboards. Partner with us to make a change for our community through Mt Si Food Bank.
The food bank serves close to 200 students who, when they go home for the weekend, leave their most reliable food source behind. That’s where the food bank steps in. Backpacks are filled with a weekend supply of food and distributed to those in need. Over longer breaks, backpacks are filled with food that lasts a week.
In addition to feeding hungry students, your gifts support others in need, including those experiencing homelessness, elderly on fixed incomes or anyone that needs a little extra help. Every week, the food bank serves over 1,100 people who, without this organization and your help, would go hungry.
