QVAP Pride for Rice!
The 2016 fundraising champions are back and we want to feed even more hungry people this year! Please join QVAP Pride for Rice as we raise money for rice at the ACRS Food Bank AND celebrate Pride Month with our co-workers and community.
The ACRS Food Bank is the one of the most visited food banks in King County, and the only one in the state that regularly provides foods that are familiar to the Asian and Pacific Islander (AAPI) diet. Each year, more than 5,136 people rely on our food bank and nutrition programs to have enough to eat. Neary 70% of our clients are children under 18 years or seniors the average age of 73 years old. Most come from low-income, AAPI households. Our food bank is located in Seattle’s Chinatown International District and provides items like rice, tofu, noodles, fish and fresh produce. Our goal is to help clients lead healthy lives by providing them with nutritious food.
Last year, we collected over $12,000 with such wonderful events as Bake for Rice, Drag for Rice and Spike for Rice. This year, Pride for Rice can be even more amazing with your participation and enthusiasm. Thank you for considering joining our team and see on Saturday, June 24th, at Seward Park.
