St. Alban's Episcopal Church in Edmonds has another drive-through food drive for the community Saturday, May 1, from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. The church has held several successful drives last year and two in 2021 this year to support local food banks.
The May 22nd event raised $812 and brought in 1,400 pounds of food. Church member Lee Forsberg noted that the total collected so far in 2021 is $1,379 and 2,750 pounds of food.
Five drives held by St. Alban's in 2020 brought in 4,600 pounds of food and $4,845 in community contributions. In addition, members of the church contributed $8,208 to the Edmonds, Lynnwood, and Mountlake Terrace food banks.
"The continued support of people from of south Snohomish County and north King County is a great example of how the community is helping one another," said Dan Mullene. "Everyone's participation in the church's food drive events and all their contributions are greatly appreciated.
Food drive organizers recommend that people bring nonperishable food such as soups, tuna, peanut butter, dry pasta, and similar items to help those in need. Diapers and infant formula are also always appreciated. Cash and checks can also be made, with checks made payable to "Food Bank."
As in the past, St. Alban's parishioners and other helpers will be on hand at the church, located at 21405 82nd Place West near the Edmonds Five Corners intersection, to accept donations. All staff will be observing full COVID-19 prevention protocols, and contributors are also asked to remain in their cars and wear masks.
