Queen Anne Elementary will be hosting a 2 week food drive, Monday, April 20 - Friday, May 1, to benefit the Queen Anne Food Bank. The QAFB is located in Lower Queen Anne and provides about 80-100 households each week with pantry staples such as cereal, beans, canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, soups and frozen meats, along with fresh produce. They also serve on average 100 bagged lunches a day, each with a meat sandwich, a vegetarian sandwich, pastries, chips or crackers, yogurt or fruit and a cup of hot soup made by volunteers in our kitchen. Depending on items in stock, they also allow participants to take as much fruit and bread as they wish.
QAFB Mission: To provide healthy food assistance to low income and homeless people in Seattle. To serve every person that comes to our door without discrimination and with the utmost respect for their dignity.
Large Boxes will be placed in each of the buildings on Monday, April 20th, after Monday Morning Meeting. Last year our school donated 396.4lbs! A HUGE contribution and we hope to do it again this year. Thanks for considering a donation from your pantry to theirs!
If you have any questions, please contact Anne Marie Canlis.
