Monday, February 27

Join your neighbors this February when you participate in Satsuma's 4th Annual Fill Your Heart and Food Driving Box Campaign. Satsuma Kids Shop owner, Jennifer, started the Food Driving Box Program to help families learn about and drive away food insecurity in the Northwest. February brings spare food bank pantry shelves, which makes it the perfect month to spread your love and donate non-perishable food to your local food bank. Pick up your FREE Food Driving Box at Satsuma Kids Shop and tell your friends! A Food Driving Box is a 15"x12" cardboard box that lists all 27 Seattle Area Food Banks. Place your Food Driving Box in your car and fill it a little each time you visit the grocery store. Let the kids help remind you! Every month, deliver the contents of your Box to your local food bank. Thanks for helping us drive out hunger in the Northwest!
