Kathleen McCasland Community Service Day 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Registration and Lunch | 1:30 – 5:00 p.m. Volunteer Activity 

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. In operation since 1979, the Pike Market Food Bank is a fixture of Market life and part of a community approach to ensure that all residents in downtown Seattle have access to quality and nutritious food.

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, getting acquainted with the other Human Service Agencies that partner with Pike Market Food Bank. We will be leaving from the Convention Center and walking as a group to the Market. If you want to join ODTUG Kscope in giving back to this truly amazing organization, sign up today
