Volunteers for the Fall City Community Food Pantry will sell slices of watermelon in return for donations supporting the community’s food bank.

Watermelon sales are sponsored by Farmhouse Market. The volunteers will also sell reusable Food Pantry shopping bags, available at Farmhouse Market.

Fall City’s iconic watermelon eating contest is on hiatus this year for lack of volunteers.

From its start as an outreach of Fall City Methodist Church, the Food Pantry has grown to help and be supported by the entire Valley.  Demand has grown and shelves occasionally get low, but the Food Pantry’s needs are always met by the community.
