community support

We are so very thankful for the broad support of our community toward the Moses Lake Food Bank and the other charitable operations we do here at CSML. Here are some highlights of the many ways our community supports what we do.
 
To all of our donors who help keep us running --area growers, food processing plants, corporations, professional organizations, churches, service clubs, businesses, and numerous unnamed individuals who donate food, clothing and other items for our clients --
 
Thank you all for doing what you do -- helping us to help others.
 
 
 
 
 
LITTLE MISS WASHINGTON PAGEANT  
 
 

In May 2010, the Little Miss Washington pageant was held in Moses Lake, Washington. True to their mission to inspire and encourage children to realize it is within their reach to help others in their communities, the pageant contestants visited and helped at our food bank. All proceeds of the pageant were donated to us. Special thanks to Dr. David and Pamela Curnell.

CATTLE PRODUCERS DONATE BEEF

Cattle Producers of Washington (CPoW) donated over $860 worth of "Product of USA" ground beef to the Moses Lake Food Bank Dec. 16. CPoW Director-District 3 Dave Dashiell is pictured with the boxes of donated beef. It was important to CPoW the donation be American lean beef for the receiving families, not only to support local ranchers but to provide the most nutritious, healthiest beef to those in need. A three-ounce serving of lean beef is a superb source of protein, zinc, vitamin B12, selenium, phosphorus, niacin, vitamin B6, iron and riboflavin. Beef’s combination of nutrients can play a powerful role in fueling children and the elderly who are especially in need of this protein-packed product.

 UNCHAINED BROTHERHOOD

In Operation Friendship, CSML collects and distributes toys for Moses Lake children. Central to our effort is the Unchained Brotherhood. Without their help, we would have difficulty achieving our goal of getting a present for every child. Rain or shine, snow or sleet, the members of this motorcycle club brave the elements each December, hit the streets and raise significant funds purchase toys for the children.

COLUMBIA BASIN HERALD

As you can see, support from our local newspaper, the Columbia Basin Herald, has been phenonemal. They cover most every special event we have, keeping us in the hearts and minds of the public. Our need for donations (both financial and food) is constant. Not only does the Columbia Basin Herald do a great job covering our stories, but they even hold a food drive for us. In November 2010, they held a Community Consignment Sale at the Grant County Fairgrounds. A food drive for the Moses Lake Food Bank was held during the event.

Thank you CBH, for all you do for our community!
