Food Bank brings holiday fixings to park Friday

Similar to last year’s holiday meal distribution events, Sequim Food Bank and community partners return to Carrie Blake Community Park this week to help those in need find all the fixings.

The Family Holiday Meal Bag program runs 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19, starting at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., where participants must check in. From there they’ll drive to the park’s north entrance on Blake Avenue and enter at the Water Reuse Demonstration Site.

This is the first of two such events, the second a Christmas-time meal distribution set for 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 17.

Last year, organizers said, about 900 families received meals at the November event. It shifted to the park to better accommodate COVID-19 precautions with items placed in a trunk or back seat.

The City of Sequim’s Emergency Management Team supports the program as part of its ongoing response to the pandemic. For more information contact Sequim’s Emergency Management Coordinator Tyler Wiles at 360-582-5730 or twiles@sequimwa.gov.

Sequim Food Bank, 144 W. Alder St., offers ongoing support from 1-4 p.m. Mondays, and 9 a.m.-noon on Fridays and Saturdays. For more information, call 360-683-1205.
