We had a great turnout at the Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank for this weekend’s work party. Several BBRC’ers did “spud scrub” (sorting potatoes) and office work.
The Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank provides support to hundreds of families each week. Each month the IFCB secures, processes and delivers over 75,000/lbs. of food. During the holiday season (Thanksgiving – New Years) they handle close to 175,000/lbs. of food. IFCB also provides case management, holiday gift programs, school supplies, toiletries and more to local families in need of a helping hand. Each week IFCB assembles 280 “superpacks” – these include school lunches for grade school students.
