We can’t ignore that this is the season for giving. For families and children in need, the holidays can be an anxious and stressful time – for kids separated from their families, women seeking safety from domestic violence, and families who desperately need housing. With your help, we can brighten the holidays for our neighbors in need.
The Food Bank of the Kenai Peninsula is a big way you can support a family in need this holiday season. Make sure to check for any local food drives and help the local food bank with what they need most before the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday.
Donor Relations Specialist Randi Smith with the Food Bank: “We will be distributing over 1,000 turkeys through various food pantries on the Kenai Peninsula, so the food pantries will be giving out Thanksgiving dinners. We are also working with the Friendship Mission to distribute food to North Kenai and Nikiski. We just have a bunch of food drives were people can support businesses and the Food Bank at the same time.”
The Kenai Peninsula Food Bank is a non-profit organization started in 1988 and provides food to over 70 non-profit agencies for their feeding programs throughout the entire Kenai Peninsula Borough. Roughly 760 families are served by the food bank each month on the Kenai Peninsula.
You can drop off any donations at the Kenai Peninsula Food Bank on 33955 Community College Dr., Soldotna, between 8:00am – 4:00pm. Click here for a list of items needed.
