Think about donating to your local food bank this month. The need is greater than ever. If you live in Seattle here are a couple of easy options for you. Those outside of Seattle jump to the end of this post.
Mashed Potatoes Party
You can donate, enjoy works from a group of artists and party all at the same time if you attend the quarterly Mashed Potatoes party held at Gasworks Gallery this Friday. Technically admission is free, but donating is encouraged and is the goal of the party. Bring non-perishable goods or donate $10 at the door to support this great cause.

King 5’s Home Team Harvest
Saturday morning you can contribute at King 5’s annual Home Team Harvest Saturday. It takes place this Saturday, December 5, from 7:00 am – 3:00 pm. King 5 personalities will be accepting donations at several locations in the Puget Sound area. Check the website for the location nearest you. Or donate throughout the month at several locations.
Of course you can always donate directly to Northwest Harvest. One of the easiest ways is to use their online donation form. Or check their site for many other ways to contribute.
If you are outside Seattle you may be able to find a listing in this directory for an organization near you. Or just do an Internet search on "Food Bank" and "City Name" for a listing of agencies in your area.
