A visit with Sam Osborne, executive director of the Rainier Valley Food Bank, is always inspiring. With few staff, dedicated volunteers and a small space this site is able to feed 11,000 needy people in our community.
With RaVE mini-grant funding Sam is able to continue providing services both at the site and home delivries for 155 households.
Connections with other RaVE partners include:
- Fruit donations from City Fruit
- Cooking demonstrations with Chef Leika from Seattle Tilth
- A van load a week of lovely, fresh local produce from Farmer Scott at the Seattle Community Farm
- Plant starts from Katie at the Rainier Beach Farm
