Donate school supplies for children in need at Cedar Grove Composting near Issaquah.

The composting facility, 17825 Cedar Grove Road S.E., is a collection site for back-to-school donations to the Maple Valley Food Bank. Donate through Wednesday to receive a 15 percent discount on bagged or bulk compost, and a 33 percent discount on kitchen collection kits.

Donate binders, notebooks, pencils and more to the food bank in order to receive the discount.

The food pantry encourages people to purchase and donate school supplies, make a monetary donation to support the purchase of wholesale backpacks and supplies, or include a monetary gift alongside supplies.

The food bank distributed 568 supply-filled backpacks at the start of the 2010-11 school year.

Cedar Grove Composting is near the Cedar Hills Regional Landfill in unincorporated King County, about eight miles south of downtown Issaquah.

Friends of Youth in downtown Issaquah is also collecting back-to-school supplies for needy children before classes start in the Issaquah School District on Aug. 30.
