The Thurston County Food Project is a revolutionary way to collect food: It’s a donor drive, not a food drive

The Food Project is a revolutionary way to collect food: It’s a donor drive, not a food drive. Instead of asking for one-time contributions of food, our volunteers (Neighborhood Coordinators) enlist their neighbors to become long-term Food Donors.

What We Do

Neighbors donate a bag of food every two months. It’s incredibly easy, because we supply the bag and we pick up the food! This provides the Thurston County Food Bank with a steady, year-round supply of food and provides donors with the ongoing satisfaction of making a real difference. They also get to know their neighbors, which builds a powerful sense of community. So everyone wins.

Financial Support

The ENA Food Project is a relatively inexpensive program to run but we’re very appreciative of any financial support. Money is used to pay for reusable bags, printing and other material expenses directly related to the program.
