Rotarians, their off-from-school children, and volunteers with the Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank formed a human chain to hustle inside 2,000 pounds of food on Friday, Jan. 21.

The Snoqualmie Valley Rotary Club used $5,000 from the 2013 Rotary Golf Tournament to purchase a truckload of goods from Costco, which is being used to fill the recently opened food bank’s coffers.

The 2014 Rotary Golf Tournament is Monday, June 30, at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.

“It’s shaping up to be a much larger event,” said Rotarian Brad Toft. “There’s a lot of support for it.”

The new, non-denominational Snoqualmie Valley Food Bank opened Wednesday, Feb. 5, next to North Bend Community Church at 122 E. 3rd St., North Bend. It was started by staff who split off from Mount Si Food Bank.
