At North Coast Credit Union we believe that when our community thrives, we ALL succeed! That's why we are pleased to partner each year with the Community Action Food Distribution Center and YummyAlert.com for Take a Bite for Skagit.
It began with a handful of individual who saw a need, including former North Coast President and CEO Terry Belcoe, and Executive Director Bill Henkel of Community Action. They realized a segment of Skagit County didn't have access to healthy food, like fresh vegetables and fruit. "You may not think a credit union would have a role in nutrition issues, but it's part of our commitment to work with local non-profits and combine our collective resources to make a difference." explains North Coast Community Development Director Thomas Boucher.
Take a Bite for Skagit is an annual fundraiser that raises awareness about the need for fresh produce for all people in our county. Getting involved is as easy as dining at participating restaurants on May 16th, 2019. A percentage of the restaurants proceeds on May 16 goes directly to Community Action Food Distribution Center. These funds are used to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables from local farms and give it to more than a dozen food banks and meal programs in our community.
North Coast Credit Union and YummyAlert.com is dedicated to growing this event, getting out the important message about providing nourishment for families in need, and making sure the Community Action Food Distribution Center is here for the long term. Funds raised during Take a Bite go directly to procuring farm fresh food!
Please join with us in supporting this important (and delicious!) event. When you Take a Bite for Skagit you also provide wholesome meals for our fellow residents!
