Feed the Community
TEEN FEED: Join us the fifth Monday of a month (almost every other month) for Teen Feed. The task force serves a hot, nutritious meal to 30-60 homeless youth as part of an interfaith coalition. Our team is divided into a cooking team and a serving/cleaning team. Each shift is approximately 2 hours long, starting at 4:30 pm and ending around 8:30 pm. We meet in the University Lutheran Church on the corner of 16th Ave. NE and NE 50th Street. Next Teen Feed: Monday, March 30, 2020

You can participate by just providing a meal (10-12 servings) and dropping it off and/or you can stay help set-up and serve.

The Alternative Food Bank Project
There is a new effort to connect families who are experiencing food insecurity, due to concerns of those who are undocumented accessing some community food banks, or due to the detention of a family member at the Northwest Detention Center and the financial hardship this often adds.
Beth Shalom will be collecting Safeway gift cards and food items for this food bank from January 6-24, 2020. Office hours for bringing in donations are Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-2pm. Office closed on Monday 1/20. Suggested food items for donation:
Passover Food Drive for Jewish Family Service
Chametz Food and Toiletries Drive
JFS Community-Wide Food Drive
Help support the Polack Food Bank during our annual Community-Wide Food Drive, which officially begins with announcements at Rosh Hashanah and culminates at the Food Sort. The Food Sort is a one-day event at the end of our Community-Wide Food Drive. Hundreds of volunteers come to our donated warehouse space to help sort and organize Food Drive donations. Donations can be made year-round.
