The City of Kenmore is partnering with Cedar Park Northshore Church Food Bank this holiday season to host the nonperishable holiday food drive.

The food drive started on Monday and will go through Dec. 8. Anyone can donate any nonperishable food items at Kenmore City Hall during business hours. All donations will go directly to those in need in the Kenmore community.

Some of the most needed items include canned fruits/vegetables, canned meats, boxed meals, soup/crackers, and oatmeal packets. There is a large bin in the lobby of City Hall to collect items. Kenmore’s Tree Lighting Festival and Holiday Market on Dec. 2 is the perfect opportunity to stop by City Hall and donate.

In the past year, Cedar Park Northshore Church Food Drive has provided over 500 grocery servings to Kenmore families. The Food Bank is open the first and third Mondays of every month from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. You can also make your donations at the church Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The food bank is located at Cedar Park Northshore Church, 18737 68th Ave. NE in Kenmore and can be reached at 425 939 1377.

For more information, visit the Food Bank’s website.
