It has come to my attention that the State of Washington is going to cut back on the budget to our local food banks unless “they prove the need” of the needy. Also local donations have been low these past several months. With the holidays coming up, what’s going to happen then?
When I first moved up here four years ago and times were difficult, I was thankful I had somewhere to go to help stretch my dollar to feed my children. When things got better the next year and many years after that, I made sure to donate food during the holidays. I’ve given back to the community who so generously gave to my children and me.
