A Message From
Micah Kurtz
​Tukwila Pantry Board Chair

​​

Dear Friends of the Tukwila Pantry, 

​Ah, the beginning of fall:  falling leaves, shorter days, kids in school, and families gathering together to share meals.  Thanks to your ongoing volunteer, community, and financial support of the Tukwila Pantry, many families in need in Tukwila, SeaTac, Burien, and Boulevard Park have been able to enjoy those moments together.  The elderly and disabled, single adults and single parents, the homeless, and families hard on their luck have not been hungry because of your generosity.  Because the Tukwila Pantry can depend on you, these communities’ children, women, and men can depend on the Tukwila Pantry.  

​The Tukwila Pantry is once again serving more individual households this year than last year.  This has been an ongoing trend for several years.  Some of the faces may change from year to year, but the need is always the same:  offering food, support, and kindness to local people in need.  With your assistance, families and individual clients can continue to seek the better things in life—getting a job, going to school, completing homework—all because they aren’t hungry.  Thank you. 

​Because of your assistance in the past, the doors stay open; our truck keeps rolling to pick up food from the Pantry’s community partners; volunteers have a place to make a meaningful contribution to their community; and hunger is diminished.  Your contributions to the Pantry do more than just put food on plates. I’ve worked in social services for several years now, and there is nothing more beautiful to me than seeing the various parts of a community work together around a common goal: turning back hunger. 

​Your financial assistance is more important than ever, our wholesale food donors have had to cut back their contributions to the Tukwila Pantry to be able to maintain their own supplies during this slow economic recovery.  This means less meat and produce for the Pantry to provide to its customers.  In addition to operating costs, the Pantry is forced to incur additional expenses to purchase these items from wholesalers.  Your additional financial assistance will help the Pantry provide balanced, nutritious carts of food to its customers—carts the Pantry’s customers have always been able to depend upon. 

​As you consider time with your loved ones around a family meal, please think about the families who depend on the Tukwila Pantry for their daily nutrition.  Thank you for what you have done for the Pantry. And please continue to assist us by any contribution you can afford.  Your financial assistance will help ensure the Tukwila Pantry can continue to operate, as well as, purchase supplemental food for the Pantry to fill plates, carts, and tables for our local area individuals and families in need. 

​In addition, I’d also like to ask you to “save the date,” Friday, November 14th for our annual Fundraising Dinner, Wine and Silent Auction Event. This year our theme is “A Night of Gratitude.” Tickets are available to purchase online (www.tukwilapantry.org News/Events tab) or at the Pantry. 

​I invite you to talk with me about the Pantry.  You are welcome to leave me a message through the Pantry (206-431-8293) and I will get back to you.  

Sincerely,
​Micah Kurtz, M.Div., MSW
​Chair, Tukwila Pantry Board of Directors
