Help Your Neighbors – Give To White Center Food Bank’s Turkey Drive Nov. 19

The White Center Food Bank will be holding a Turkey Drive on Saturday, Nov. 19th from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., in an effort to collect donated frozen turkeys and chickens for their upcoming Thanksgiving holiday distribution.

White Center Food bank expects to serve over 1,000 families for the holiday. This year’s turkey shortage, combined with high wholesale prices (currently $1.25 a pound) make it difficult for the food bank to purchase turkeys at normally deep discounts.

Starting today (Sunday, Nov. 13), local sales and deals on turkeys will be posted on the White Center Food Bank’s Facebook Page. Other meal items that are needed include:

  • Olives
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Pickles
  • Cookie or cake mixes
  • Cool whip or whipping cream
  • Pumpkin
  • Any type of canned milk
  • Muffin mixes
  • Pie crust mixes

To donate, any turkey or chicken should be frozen and brought to the White Center Food Bank at 10829 8th Ave SW on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Other times to drop-off are available; please call 206-762-2848.

Volunteers are still needed to assist with holiday distribution as well including Monday through Wednesday, November 21-23 from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.
