21 Aug 2022 - Help our community by donating to SHARE!
This part of the year is when the Share Food Bank shelves get low and donations dip. It's an opportunity to remember that there are people in need in our community! Each week, SHARE Food Bank serves over 325 Tri-Cities families and individuals. Since spring 2022, the number of users has increased by 18%.
When you donate cash, we are able to purchase fresh and healthy food in large quantities at wholesale rates less than what you pay in the grocery store. We can purchase what we need, when we need it, to best support the needs of our community.
