It’s hard to believe that in the land of plenty, so many families go hungry. In Whatcom county, fresh food is everywhere. And yet for many families, food is hard—if not impossible—to come by. We’re putting an end to this.
For the past 45 years, we have served as a hub, connecting our neighbors and emergency food providers with a steady supply of nutritious groceries, fresh food and a smile.
