Helping Hands Food Bank and Solution Center - November 11, 2020

Host Jerry Shackette talks with the leadership team at the Helping Hands Food Bank and the Helping Hands Solution Center in Sedro-Woolley, Washington.

As one of twelve not-for-profit food banks in Skagit County, Helping Hands sees thousands of people seeking help with food access. Executive Director Rebecca Larsen answers the question where does all this food come from?

Not only is there regular food distribution in Sedro-Woolley, Helping Hands has been responding to the Covid-19 pandemic with distribution in Anacortes, Concrete and Marblemount.

Jerry and Development Director Nichole Long explore the concept of the Solutions Center with space for everything from nutrition seminars and computer skill classes, to boy scout meetings. There is a dedicated DSHS navigator on site to help with access to need services in the community.

Join the conversation and discover the food bank is a lot more than just a bag of potatoes.
