When I first woke up this morning my Facebook feed was filled with people giving thanks, remembering and honoring our veterans. I appreciate my friends even more because of posts like those. I also appreciate my colleagues today. While many other people are off work, Northwest Harvest staff is not. We are staffing the Cherry Street Food Bank, working on fundraising events and operating our warehouses across the state because hunger has no holidays.
Today as we remember our veterans and thank them all for their service I hope we all also remember the struggles of many of our clients, many of them veterans, who aren't just hungry during working hours.
Thank you to our veterans, thank you to Northwest Harvest staff who are working today to help fight hunger and many thank you to volunteers who are doing a huge service to their community today.
