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.

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. Location: Lamb of G-d Lutheran Church at 12509 27th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98125.

Safeway gift card drive – help without leaving your home!
Congregation Beth Shalom’s Immigration Committee partners with the Church Council of Greater Seattle to house and support asylum seekers. There is a need for rent and food assistance, as the current situation with coronavirus is causing financial insecurity for many. Beth Shalom has $25 Safeway gift cards that you can purchase and donate. To do so, simply call the front office at (206) 524-0075, and we can bill your account. We will then mail the donated gift cards to the Church Council for distribution to families in need.
The Alternative Food Bank Project
The Alternative Food Bank supports individuals and families impacted by the immigration system. An aggressive ICE deportation campaign has left many immigrant families vulnerable and wary of reaching out to government-funded food banks and resource centers — the Alternative Food Bank Project was established to help fill this void. The project involves partners throughout the Puget Sound coordinating donation drop-off sites. CBS has been serving as the drop-off site for donations from six different congregations that make up the U-District Sanctuary Hub. Donations will be distributed by the Alternative Food Bank in south Seattle, where there is the most need.

Donations can be made year-round.
