Rebecca Schlaht, operations manager, at Helping Hands Food Bank in Sedro-Woolley is a rising star in the food world…at least that’s what she’s heard. While not a household name quite yet, Schlaht and her team are hard at work finding inventive ways to better serve their clients in Skagit County. Schlaht’s motivation is clear, “I want to change the public’s notion of who uses the food bank and the kind of food they get.”
Food Lifeline’s Mobile Food Pantry (MFP) has energized a growing set of services at the East Whatcom Regional Resource Center in Maple Falls. In this remote region of Western Washington, services for those in need can be few and far between. However, our MFP is developing into an important hub of support for the community.
