Weekly Grocery Giveaway
September 4, 2020
Uncle Ike’s believes in lowering the barriers to access food. In October, Uncle Ike’s Bottle Shop started a weekly grocery drive in partnership with the Emergency Feeding Program. EFP is a nonprofit organization committed to providing a nutritional response to people in need of immediate food assistance by collaborating with partner agencies to ensure that no one will go hungry tonight.
In November alone, Ike’s gave away over 500 boxes of groceries and employees volunteered their time at EFP’s warehouse where they prepared boxes of food to be given out all across King County. In total, Ike’s has given away over 3,400 boxes of free groceries at their Central District and White Center locations.
Ike’s continues to give away boxes of free groceries at their Central District and White Center locations starting at 12pm EVERY Monday! Boxes containing meat, bread, cheese & dairy, fresh produce, canned & dried goods, packaged snacks, and MORE are made available to anyone in need during these difficult times. Please come grab a box – no questions asked. First come, first served. While supplies last.
