Updated with additional information regarding the Edmonds Heroes Café.
Due to the surge of COVID-19 cases, the Edmonds Food Bank is canceling its Feb. 2 Heroes Café event for military veterans.
Organizers said they are working on “a new and improved Veterans, Military and Military Family program to begin in the next few months,” which will better meet the needs of the community.
Edmonds Heroes Café will continue its important work, at a new venue, in establishing a communal and supportive space for veterans to share their stories and experiences with one another. The Edmonds Food Bank’s upcoming veteran programming, meanwhile, will have a different focus, organizers said.
