Annie’s Community Kitchen, a ministry of Edmonds Lutheran Church, expressed gratitude for the elected officials who served over 250 guests at the free Thanksgiving feast Wednesday night. Those serving were 32nd District State Sen. Maralyn Chase, Edmonds Mayor Dave Earling, Edmonds City Council President Adrienne Fraley-Monillas; Edmonds City Councilmember Mike Nelson, Woodway Town Council member Tom Whitson, and newly-elected Edmonds School Board member Carin Chase.
Annie’s Community Kitchen also offered thanks “to the grocery stores in our community who provide the food for our ‘gleaning’ program; to PCC for cooking our turkeys in their commercial ovens; to the Key Club at E-W High School for baking 80 pumpkin pies; and for the Kamiak students who provided the musical interlude for us to enjoy during the dinner.”
“We are grateful that our community cares so deeply about lending a helping hand to our neighbors who need help with the basic necessities of life—food, clothing and shelter.”
Annie’s Kitchen has been serving free dinners every Wednesday night for over 11 years. You can volunteer or learn more by sending an email to: [email protected]. Volunteer help is especially needed each Wednesday from 9 a.m.-noon at the Edmonds Lutheran Church—when preparation begins for the free Wednesday night dinner. No experience is needed.
