Volunteers…

Volunteers Bring Great Results

By Lorraine Morgan Scott

December 21st, 2017,  was a cold, clear morning. It starting at 6:30 am, and more than 30 volunteers started gathering at the Loon Lake Food Bank to get everything ready for the anticipated 650 clients that would soon arrive.

Some volunteers prepared and packed boxes, while others arranged bread, meat, and fresh vegetables. Some volunteers handled all the administrative necessities, and others moved supplies by forklift to where they could best be utilized. The operation was well organized and everyone was in great spirits!

When the clients arrived, they were pleasantly surprised to find there was hardly any wait, if any. It was a testament to the old adage, “many hands make light work.”

The mission of the Loon Lake Food Bank is to provide food for the hungry, and while there’s hope that there soon is no longer a need for such an organization,  until then  having so many volunteers contribute to the good of the community – is a wonderful thing.

HISTORY & WORK

The Loon Lake Food Bank was started in 1980, in the trunk of a car and incorporated in 1983.  As we have grown from out of a car to our large building, so has the number of clients.  We are serving an average of 1600 families per month.

We have come from a very small to the largest food bank in Stevens, Pend Oreille and Ferry Counties.  Our expenses escalate annually and are met only by the generous support of caring friends, businesses and agencies.

With the generosity of our supporters, we are keeping pace with the goal that there will be no hungry child, adult or senior, in our geographic area.

During our summer months, we provide breakfast and lunches to the kids in the community in need of a meal during that time.

  • To assist in resources and growth.
