Last year we fed approximately 1500 needy people at Thanksgiving.

This is a wonderful service we offer to the greater Seattle area community. We provide food all over Seattle - and from Everett to the East Side even to battered woman's shelters & more. By giving to others in greater need makes outs lives all the more fulfilled !

    Many of you have expressed interest in attending Seattle Basket Brigade this Sat. Many HAVE NOT RSVP on our official website. You will be notified of location when you RSVP.

    Last year we expected 150 volunteers & 300 showed up! Those who RSVP will get to eat 1st the great volunteer food. Finally you foodies we have some amazing Thai & Indian food donated & Tutta Bella Pizza for our volunteer party Sat PM. Again PLEASE RSVP. We are short about $3000 for donations. Unless we get more donations many of these people will not receive food for Thanksgiving.

    Please consider donating even if you are not able to attend. Make your Thanksgiving even more special by giving up some of yourself to others in need.
