Top Foods, its customers deserve special thanks

The Board of Directors of the Snohomish Community Food Bank acknowledges the wonderful support of the Snohomish Top Foods grocery store and staff, which raised more than $14,000 over the holiday season. The Snohomish Community Food Bank is truly appreciative of this caring and benevolent business and expresses our thanks to Tim Peppers, manager, and Kim Walker, community coordinator.

Snohomish Top Foods deserves special appreciation for organizing this fund drive, as do the many shoppers who donated funds and food to keep our food bank feeding our local families.

In 2008 we felt the impacts of a dramatic decrease in traditional food support supplies and deliveries. As the economy faltered, the food bank experienced more than 400 new families. 2009 will be a year of challenge for our community as we continue to carry on the tradition of taking care of our own in need. We humbly bestow our grateful thanks to the people of Snohomish and the staff of Top Foods.
