Our Redeemer’s helped start Neighbors in Need, which later became the Ballard Food Bank. Our long-standing relationship with the Ballard Food Bank increases our capacity to serve the surprising number of people experiencing hunger and food insecurity in our community. We collect non-perishable food, hygiene items and financial gifts for the food bank. The second Sunday of each month is Food Bank Sunday, but donations are welcome any time. A couple times each year, we collect donations for the Ballard Food Bank outside local grocery stores, and church members volunteer at the food bank all year long. Last year, we participated in the Food Bank’s backpack program, which provides 200 backpacks with a weekend’s worth of food for food insecure families. Our members serve the food bank on the board, as drivers and as volunteers within the facility. However you participate, we hope you’ll be a part of supporting this important organization.
