Ridgecrest food drive aims to stock Hopelink food bank for winter

Sunday, December 16, 2018

Your donations of canned soup, canned tomato products
and breakfast items will go to Shoreline Hopelink
The Ridgecrest Neighborhood Association and business community deliberately time their annual food drive to help Hopelink provide for neighbors during the cold winter months, when donations typically are low.

They would love to see folks donate canned soup, canned tomato products and breakfast items because these are things that Hopelink can back-stock for after the holidays.

Following Christmas, Hopelink shelves get pretty bare as donations drop off. Since these suggested items are not traditional holiday food - Hopelink can use them as basic items for the Food Bank as needed.

The RNA has an ambitious goal to collect a thousand pounds of food. Last year's drive brought in 800 pounds of food.

The drive is not limited to the Ridgecrest neighborhood. They want to create the opportunity for everyone to donate.
Approach from westbound NE 165th
Café Aroma is at the corner of 5th NE and NE 165th

With that in mind, anyone can drop off non-perishable food donations at Café Aroma or the Ridgecrest Public House. 

Both are located in the business district at NE 165th and 5th NE - "downtown Ridgecrest." (Think Crest Theatre)

The drive will continue until January 1, 2019 - and you are welcome to come by multiple times!

Drop off non-perishable food items at:
Café Aroma has a drive-thru - so you can get your coffee and drop off some cans of food without getting out of your car! (Editor's note: the coffee is very good!)
