Meals program seeks cutting boards, towels, other items
December 27, 2011
In an effort to curb waste and cooperate with the city of Issaquah’s recycling initiatives, the local meals program is hoping to eliminate paper and plastic products from its dinner services.
The program recently has installed a high speed, sanitizing dishwasher and has been collecting donations of plates and silverware. Organizers now are set for dishes, according to Issaquah Meals Coordinator Adria Briehl.
However, Briehl said full-sized cutting boards would be helpful, as would kitchen and bath towels, the latter so staffers can make full use of the new dishwasher. Medical or food service gloves in which to serve food also would be welcomed.
Donations can be dropped off any weeknight from 5-6:30 p.m. at the firehouse on Sunset Way next to the Issaquah Police Department.
