This year, Redmond Mayor John Marchione will join with city council members, human services commissioners, Redmond Youth Partnership Advisory Committee (RYPAC) and others in holding a food drive to benefit Hopelink’s new Redmond food bank.
This year’s food drive will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 22-23 at the Bella Bottega QFC. Shoppers are encouraged to donate healthy foods such as whole grains, nuts, and dried fruit in addition to staples such as pasta, peanut butter and canned tuna. Cash donations will also be accepted.
Each month, Hopelink distributes more than 47,000 pounds of food in the city of Redmond. Marchione encourages everyone to “help us stock the shelves by donating healthy, hearty and nutritious foods that will nourish and feed those most in need.”
