Bartell hosts food drive
May 21, 2013
Helping fight hunger in the Puget Sound area continues with the “Bartell’s Community Food Drive,” a community partnership with Food Lifeline, through June 1.
All Bartell Drugs in Issaquah, 5700 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway S.E. will be accepting nonperishable food items to replenish local food banks in the summer months, when families that normally depend on free or reduced-price school meals may struggle to provide healthy meals at home, according to a press release from Bartell Drugs.
Suggested foods include tuna, instant oatmeal, cereals, macaroni and cheese, peanut butter, jam, cheese crackers, applesauce and canned fruit. Other items include baby formula, diapers, baby food and personal care items, such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, tissues, shampoo and conditioner, soap and feminine hygiene products.
