Sign up for Foothills Food Bank Annual Thanksgiving Box Preparation and Distribution Tour in Maple Falls, WA

The Foothills Food Bank has been serving the Unincorporated East Whatcom Community since 1986. In 2020, the Food Bank relocated to its permanent home in building 2 of the East Whatcom Regional Resource Center campus. Our mission is to distribute quality, nutritious food to community members in need, and deliver services with respect and dignity. We offer an in-person, grocery-style shopping experience where individuals and families have access to fresh and frozen produce, dairy products, meat, proteins, canned and dry goods, and bread. The week of Thanksgiving tends to be our busiest of the year; we’re expecting to serve around 300 families. We need help packing Thanksgiving boxes and stockings to prepare for our distribution the following day.

There is a high need for volunteers on Tuesday, November 23rd.

Thanksgiving Box distribution and Foothills Food Bank tour

Participants will be helping us with our annual Thanksgiving distribution! Our clients will have the opportunity to shop as usual, but they will also be receiving a pre-packed box full of Thanksgiving essentials.
