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.





  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.

Every Thanksgiving, the Moses Lake Food Bank gives each family extra food for their Thanksgiving dinner. REC Silicon kicked off our 2010  "turkey drive" with a generous employee donation of 231 turkeys. Thank you REC, for all your support.

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.

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