It is with supreme regret that we inform you that our Jackson Street Food Bank will be closing indefinitely after its distribution on Wednesday, March 25.
Our director, Ed Wolfer, reports: “I just want everyone to know that unfortunately, we have been asked to close our doors at the Jackson Street Food Bank after our March distribution. We are a small food bank, and in these difficult times, Nourish Pierce County is committed to getting the most food into the hands of those that need it most. To streamline their distribution, they have asked us to temporarily close our doors. We have been serving the West Slope neighborhood for over 18 years, and we are sorry we can’t continue, but it is for the good of the community.”
On Wednesday, The Food Bank extended its hours from our usual 5:00 to 7:00 P.M. and began serving at 3:00 P.M. They continued until they had nothing more to give out, and distributed dried beans, canned beans, canned vegetables, canned soup, rice, oatmeal, pasta, and other shelf-stable food.
