As a community, the goal is for the community (people like you!) to provide up to 100 prepared meals from a local restaurant once a week—to allow folks experiencing food insecurity a break from cooking during these stressful times. At the same time, local restaurants receive much needed revenue.
To achieve this goal, you can donate to help raise $1,500 every week to be used as follows:
- $25 gift cards will be purchased from participating restaurants each week as funds allow
- Households of 1 person will receive one card
- Households of 2 to 4 people will receive two cards
- Households of more than 4 people will receive 3 cards
The cards you fund through your donations will be available from CAC for people using the food bank during distribution hours, which are Wednesdays 11AM-1PM and Thursdays 2PM-4PM. Other nonprofit partners, such as Pullman Child Welfare, ATVP, and Food Pantries served by Council on Aging and Human Services will also distribute gift cards as available. Pullman Serves it Forward gift cards are not available for walk-ins and non-food bank clients.
