"Bartell's Community Food Drive" supports Food Lifeline programs helping out-of-school children, families and senior citizens in need this summer, with all Bartell's store locations accepting nonperishable food items and personal care items.
Ongoing now through June 1, the drive focuses on replenishing food bank stocks in King, Snohomish & Pierce counties during summer months--when families that normally depend on free or reduced-price school meals may struggle to provide healthy meals at home.
Some food item suggestions include tuna, instant oatmeal, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, jelly, cheese crackers, applesauce and canned fruit. Other suggested items include baby formula, diapers, baby food (boxes or plastic tubs only) and personal care items such as toothpaste, tooth brushes, tissues, shampoo and conditioner, soap and feminine hygiene products.
