Annie’s Community Kitchen, a ministry of Edmonds Lutheran Church that provides a hot meal free of charge every Wednesday night in the church basement, received an Honorable Mention for the Excellence in Food Resource Development Award last week from Food Lifeline.

Annie Fortnum and Bob Snyder founded “Annie’s Kitchen” in 2004, an all-volunteer effort to cook and serve a free community meal every Wednesday night. An average of 200 people attend the dinner each Wednesday, and thanks to Snyder and his volunteer gleaners, the kitchen operates on close to 100-percent donated food, and they also distribute close to two tons of food each week to food banks.

“The work of Annie’s Community Kitchen is a shining example of God’s love in action” said Snyder in response to the award.
