The Sky Valley Food Bank has received two grants from the Greater Everett Community Foundation.
The grant from the Human Services Endowment Fund will be used to provide food for the food bank’s weekend emergency backpack program at Frank Wagner Elementary School for the 2013/2014 school year. This program provides backpacks full of nutritious food every weekend for children who are receiving free or reduced-price lunches and breakfasts at school.
The second grant from the Coastal Community Employee Giving Fund will be used for general operating expenses.
The Sky Valley Food Bank also received a $5000 grant from the Tulalip Tribes Charitable Fund. This grant will be used exclusively to supply diapers for the children of the food bank’s clients.
