Serving lunch at WIN White Center

KHN will be serving lunch in White Center on the following below listed dates.

The meal is held in the parking lot outside Bartell’s in White Center: 9600 15th Ave SW, Seattle, WA. That’s where food contributions should go. Unless you’re planning to stay to serve, food should be in disposable containers, such as tin foil trays. No other restrictions.

Some more information for first-timers:

-We will be serving at the Bartell parking lot on the corning of SW Roxbury and 15th Avenue SW in White Center.

-WIN has a vintage school bus that they bring to the site and it stores three canopy tents, long tables, and supplies.

-People will be showing up to pick up food beginning at noon, so we need to be there at around 11:30-11:45 to set up.

-In addition to the food we’ll be serving, there is a need for all kinds of mens clothes and plastic shopping/grocery bags for people to take back the donated clothes and food.  Please bring any mens clothes (new and used), hygiene items, and plastic bags that you can donate.

-There is no electricity at the site to keep food warm.

-In addition to any clothes and bags you can donate, we just need to bring our meals.  Serving utensils, plates, drinks, forks, and spoons will be available.

-Keep in mind that for many of the people we will be serving, this may be their only hot meal all week so overly spicy food may be difficult for them.

For more information please email tikkunolam@khnseattle.org. Thank you!

 HIRING WORKERS FROM CASA LATINA

Here’s a wonderful suggestion from longtime TBA member Rachael Levine:

“I have had great success employing workers from Casa Latina to help us with house cleaning and basic maintenance of our large yard and garden areas. A phone call to 206-956-0779 x3 provides information regarding availability and conditions of employment. I have enjoyed the diversity, skill and work ethic of each worker. This is a direct way to help sustain a worker and his/her family. Over the past 5-6 years, I have never had a negative incident and have only enjoyed the diversity and skill of those who have been sent. This is a direct way to help sustain a family while mutually developing community.”  More information about hiring workers from Casa Latina is here:https://casa-latina.org/get-involved/hire-worker.
