April Food Day

April Food Day 2024

It’s not a trick! We want to partner with you to gather non-perishable food for local food banks from March 22nd -29th for delivery on Monday, April 1st.  This is a great way to engage your team or your customers. We will send you a whole kit for the event. The kit will have detailed instructions, timeline suggestions, posters for print, and social media posts for you to use. The collections for each community in Thurston will go to nearby food banks. So if you collect in Yelm, it will stay in Yelm.
