Join Us for the Annual Pantry Appreciation Dinner

Please join us on Wednesday, March 12, 2014, at 6:00 pm for the Annual My Sister's Pantry Appreciation Dinner. We'll treat you for dinner, as you hear clients and volunteers share what makes the Pantry important to them. Once again, an outstanding volunteer will receive the Maxine Strom Volunteer of the Year award.

This is your opportunity to pledge your support to the Pantry. Seats are limited. To reserve yours, contact Martha Curwen on (253) 627-1186.


The Pantry needs a driver to pick up food in Tacoma, Kent and Orting on a weekly basis, as well as occasional pick-ups from other locations. You'll need to have a valid Washington License, a good driving record, and the ability to lift fifty (50) pounds. This part-time, paid position is for 8 hours per week. If you are interested, please contact Martha Curwen at (253) 627-1186.

Recycle bin helps food banks.

We all know that recycling is good for the environment, but did you know it can help those in need?

For 16 years and counting the "Food Bank Recycling Program" has raised over $250,000 for local Food Banks, and with your help that amount can continue to grow.

Fibres International Inc. places a community recycling bin for FREE. Materials collected are turned into cash, and proceeds from those materials are donated to the Food Bank of your choice. Quite simply this program is worry-free, we maintain the bins and determine the frequency the bin is serviced. All we need from you is one parking space! Working together we can help the local Food Banks in their goal of helping our community.
