Join us the day before ODTUG Kscope19 officially kicks off for the annual ODTUG Kscope Kathleen McCasland Community Service Day volunteer event, on Saturday, June 22 from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m.
This year, ODTUG has partnered with Pike Market Food Bank for our community service day project. Pike Market Food Bank alleviates hunger in downtown Seattle by providing families with free healthy groceries weekly. The food bank distributes more than 800,000 pounds of food annually with more than 40,000 visits and home deliveries.
ODTUG Kscope attendees will assemble 1,000 sack lunches of nutritious, ready-to-eat, non-perishable meals. These “no-cook” bags meet the nutritional needs of Seattleites facing homelessness and other emergency situations. This activity will serve the community’s growing emergency food needs for over a month.
Throughout the activity, groups of 10–15 people will have the opportunity to go on 20–30 minute walks around the market. During this tour, volunteers will have the chance to hand out assembled bags at locations in the market where people experiencing homelessness gather.
Please Note the Time Change of the Event
In an effort to make this event more convenient for our out-of-town travelers, we've moved it to the afternoon of June 22, 1:30–5:00 p.m.
