A pop-up food pantry event in Mountlake Terrace provided food to more than 130 households Saturday. The event was sponsored by Volunteers of America Western Washington (VOAWW), with assistance from the City of Mountlake Terrace, Concern for Neighbors Food Bank and multiple other local organizations.

“This was a fantastic opportunity to serve friends, family and neighbors in need,” said VOAWW CEO Steve Corsi. “We want to make sure that nobody goes to bed hungry, especially this time of year, but any time of year we don’t want anybody to be hungry or go without food nutrition.”
