Thurston County Food Bank opens distribution site at Evergreen
The Thurston County Food Bank has opened a distribution site at The Evergreen State College, the college announced.
The site opened May 5 and served more than 90 people.
The drive up location is in parking lot C, which is on the right as you enter the college, and will operate 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every other Tuesday through July 28. It opens again May 19.
The new location is a collaboration between the food bank, Thurston County Emergency Management and the college.
“Our aim is to support all our community members through this pandemic, recognizing that tribal nations, communities of color, people with disabilities, those without shelter, or experiencing job or food insecurity have been hardest hit by the impacts of COVID-19 and resultant economic hardship,” said Therese Saliba, Evergreen interim vice president for inclusive excellence, in a statement.
Evergreen’s Student Union also has plans to deliver food to students who are unable to use the drive-through.
Drive-through food bank services at Evergreen will open on these Tuesdays: May 19, June 2, June 16, June 30, July 14 and July 28.
The Evergreen State College is at 2700 Evergreen Pkwy NW, Olympia, WA 98505.
