We are extremely grateful to the Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Foundation for their extremely generous grant to help us feed Seattle's kids during these extraordinarily trying times.
Volunteer of the Month
Congratulations and a huge THANK YOU to Emily Antezana, our Backpack Brigade Volunteer of the Month for December, 2020. Emily has been a setup volunteer for almost four years now. When the pandemic struck she stepped up to manage two setup days every week. She is a miracle worker with space, fitting all our food into our tiny warehouse and still leaving room for us to work. She is flexible, always happy to help, and no matter what we throw at her, she always makes it happen - from increasing or decreasing bag numbers, making last-minute menu changes, replacing items that don’t come in time, or handling any of our many other last-minute surprises. We are so thankful for Emily, and are very grateful to name her our Volunteer of the month!
