[ARCHIVED] Pop Up Food Pantry Coming to MLT

In the midst of COVID-19, food insecurity is affecting many residents in the Mountlake Terrace community. To address this need, Volunteers of America of Western Washington (VOAWW) is working with the City of Mountlake Terrace to hold a pop up food pantry on Friday, August 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The location is adjacent to the former Roger’s Market location at 57th Avenue W and 232nd Street SW.

This partnership was initiated by Councilmember Steve Woodard, who along with Mountlake Terrace residents and Councilmembers, delivered VOAWW food pantry boxes from Lynnwood to residents in our city over the past several weeks. The growing demand, from five boxes requested in the first week to 52 boxes in the sixth week, led to bringing the pop up pantry directly to Mountlake Terrace.

Councilmember Woodard and VOAWW staff have coordinated a number of community partners on this effort including the City, Concern for Neighbors Food Bank, Cedarwood International Food Bank, Edmonds College Food Pantry, Farmer Frog, EastWest Food Rescue, Kindness Rocks MLT, Mountlake Terrace Community Foundation, Mountlake Terrace Senior Center/Creekside Church, and South County Fire.

“The City of Mountlake Terrace is pleased to be a part of this effort to assist our residents,” stated Community Relations Director Virginia Olsen. “It is wonderful to see how our community helps take care of each other and puts positivity into action.”

For those needing food, you may either walk up or drive through the pop up pantry while complying with physical distancing measures. Residents who cannot attend can request delivery service. The city will also provide cloth face masks for those who request them. In addition to non-perishable items, fresh produce is also available in partnership with Farmer Frog and EastWest Food Rescue.

For those interested in volunteering, you may sign up here and if you would like food delivered, please sign up here. Woodard added that food is available to anyone whether you are a Mountlake Terrace resident or not. For more information, please contact mltvoawwfb@gmail.com or (425) 610-9088.
