Food Boxes for Families Program Continues this Tuesday

For the third week in a row, Bounty for Families will be distributing boxes of free, organic, locally sourced produce at four locations throughout the Yelm area on Tuesday, July 28th from 10:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m. The Yelm Rotary Club has generously allowed us to join them at their 10 Weeks of Summer program sites: Clearwood main gate, Nisqually Pines main office parking lot, Yelm City Park and the historic school building (next to the high school) in Rainier.

Please note: the Rotary Club’s program is specifically for families with children who qualify for free and reduced lunch at local schools. The Food Boxes for Families produce is available for anyone who needs it on a first come/first serve basis, including adults without children and senior citizens. We are happy to hand out produce and also want to make sure that the Rotary boxes get to the children they’re meant to help, so please bear that distinction in mind when you come to see us.

Thanks to the volunteers who are making this work and to Hugh Jones of the Evergreen United Food Hub for making the drive with his truck of delicious greens every week.
