Who Gets the Food?

One question that kept surfacing as the Clark Neighbors Food Project was being planned this year was: “Where does the food go?

Since we started in the Truman Neighborhood of Vancouver WA, and since Truman Elementary School families were intended recipients, we wanted a way for our collection to directly benefit the Family Community Resource program at the school. FISH, a food pantry in downtown Vancouver, agreed to include Truman School as a partner. That means the school program will be able to access CNFP donations as needed to meet neighborhood family food requests.

 

FISH (Friends in Service to Humanity) is a food pantry that has been helping to feed hungry families in Vancouver for over 45 years. FISH partners with many local businesses and organizations to fill their warehouse with contributions from food drives, grocery stores, food banks and other sources.

We are very proud to have FISH as part of our Clark Neighbors Food Project. Check them out at www.fishvancouver.org.

 

As our project expands throughout Clark County, we will look at other food pantries that could benefit from neighbor donations.
