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.
