Food & Clothing

At the Rotary Club of Snoqualmie Valley, we are acutely aware of the challenges that food insecurity poses within our community. We believe that everyone deserves consistent access to nutritious food, and we are committed to making a positive difference wherever we can.Our club undertakes regular initiatives to alleviate hunger. We work closely with local Food Banks, and they are among our regular grant recipients, to ensure that they can continue their crucial work of providing nourishment to those in need. In addition, we deliver meals to our local homeless shelter, providing sustenance and comfort to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

We also extend our service to the younger members of our community, addressing food insecurity in our local schools. Our Club supports the innovative “Food Closet” program, a discreet and dignified approach to combating hunger among students. This program enables children who may not have adequate food at home to collect a backpack full of supplies from school, ensuring they have access to necessary nourishment. No questions are asked, and the process respects the privacy of these students while helping to fill their needs. Beyond our focus on food assistance, we also recognize the importance of providing essential clothing to those in need. We organize multiple clothing drives throughout the year, collecting a variety of garments to distribute to those who may otherwise struggle to afford them.

The work we do to address food insecurity and provide for other basic needs would not be possible without the generous support of our community members. Your donations, either monetary or in-kind, go a long way in helping us sustain and expand these vital programs. By contributing, you are directly aiding those in our community who need it most and affirming our collective commitment to “Service Above Self”.We encourage you to join us in these efforts. Together, we can make a tangible difference and help ensure that all members of our community have access to the essentials they need to thrive.
