Queen Ann Food Bank
“Are you hungry? Here’s food.” It’s all about dignity for the people who volunteer at the Queen Anne Food Bank at the Sacred Heart of Jesus parish in Seattle. The program is a Redemptorist ministry that provides sack lunches and bags of groceries to homeless people, working families and anyone who finds themselves in need. The food bank is open Monday through Thursday, and additionally offers “Friday Packs” for the weekend.
The food bank has started a “Friday Pack Program” so that people have food during the weekend, adding a much needed service for those who would otherwise go hungry on the weekends. This new program caught the attention of KOMO TV, which did a story on the program in February. Check it out the video here.
