The NE Tacoma community is a generous one! Our food bank is grateful to our faithful donors who supplement the weekly commodities we receive from NW Harvest, Emergency Food Network, and Food Lifeline.
Since establishing the food bank at Browns Point UMC in September 2012, we have received donations from Browns Point Elementary School, Crescent Heights Elementary School, Meeker Middle School, St. Matthews Episcopal Church, Resurrection Lutheran Church, Marine View Presbyterian Church, NE Tacoma Community Garden, NE Tacoma Neighborhood Council, Browns Point Improvement Club, Dash Point Social and Improvement Club, and several local businesses.
Equally important are the donations brought in by members of our congregation, friends and neighbors! In the spring and summer we look forward to the fresh produce they grow in their gardens; and in the winter we are blessed by those who drop off an extra turkey or pie at Thanksgiving, or a ham at Christmas. Our food bank families are truly thankful!
