"Bartell Drugs' Stock the Pantry" food drive begins May 30-- helping to feed out-of-school children and families during summer months
Bartell Drugs' Stock the Pantry" food drive supporting Northwest Harvest kicks off May 30 with all
Bartells' store locations accepting non-perishable food donations through June 12.
Now in its third year, the two-week drive by Bartell Drugs focuses on replenishing food bank, meal program and school food stocks in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties during summer months--when families that normally depend on free or reduced-price school meals may struggle to provide healthy meals at home.
"Year-round hunger is an unfortunate reality for many children and their families. Through the generous contributions by our customers, we're proud to support Northwest Harvest with this effort," said Bartell's Chairman and CEO George D. Bartell.
The Shoreline Bartell's is located in Gateway Plaza at N 185th and Aurora.
