As need grows, so does the effort to help.
The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank announced an extension of its food and clothing bank service hours in April. It will now remain open from 5-7 p.m. every Monday evening in an attempt to serve the growing community who relies on the bank’s services.
“Our numbers have grown substantially from 2012 to 2013,” Executive Director Cori Walters said. “We’ve seen a 23 percent increase from our food customers, and that doesn’t include our clothing banks.”
The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank provides free food, clothing and related services to individuals and families in need.
The growth affected how well the bank could provide its services.

Heather Matthews always felt there should be more activities available on Thanksgiving Day than the annual family-generated Turkey Bowl of tackle football.
So, she ran, not walked, to participate in a Turkey Trot event in Seattle. After two years of that, the online marketer decided her hometown of Issaquah needed something similar.
“I believe after seeing the Seattle Turkey Trot grow and grow, people really were looking for more than football and eating on Thanksgiving,” Matthews said.
