North Helpline Food Bank Low On Supplies

We’ve written before about North Helpline, a food bank and emergency services shelter, that serves the NE Seattle area.

We recently received this email from Amy, Executive Director at North Helpline:

We just learned a major source of our food supply, the letter carrier’s Stamp Out Hunger food drive, collected 23% less food than last year. And yet the demand at our food bank is up 30% over last year.

We are very low on sources of protein and could use donations of canned tuna, chicken, corned beef, chili & peanut butter or frozen packages of meat. 

For the first time I can remember since starting here two years ago, we had to open the food bank with any offerings of protein for our clients.

If you can publicize the need in any way, I would be greatly appreciative.

Here are some drop-off  locations for food:

All that Dance - 8507 35th Avenue NE

Wedgewood Alehouse - 8515 35th Avenue NE

Cloud City Coffee - 8801 Roosevelt Way NE

Café Javisti - 8410 5th Avenue NE

Meadowbrook Community Center - 10517 35th Avenue NE
