January 2023 | Director's Report

Hey all!


We had two grocery store food drives for the month that brought in $1,772.71, $60 in gift cards and 3,475 pounds of food.


Down 24.8% from December, we served 3,708 individuals in 1,280 families. The number served is up 9.6% from January 2023.


We received 85,642 pounds of food through donations, government commodities, grocery store food rescue, food drives and purchases. 63,746 pounds of food were served for the month, which was an average of 49.8 pounds per family.


79 volunteers donated 689 hours of service valued at $11,499.41.


I finished up all of the interviews for the Snohomish County contract that we received. I saw a common trend that many people lacked the skills to create good resumes, could use help with interview skills and were not proficient with computers. Throughout the interviews, I also realized that we serve a lot of military families. We have begun asking clients if they are from military families, with roughly 10% saying they are.


The first month with Ace Hardware doing their round-up at the register for us brought in $3,607.29! This should be a big help for us this year. I am also working with another local store to do this for us.


Respectfully submitted,

Anthony Hawley, Executive Director
