We are inviting all of the Italian, Italian-American community members in the Pacific North West to participate in a “no contact” food drive. Volunteers will be staffing the parking area of the new Casa Italiana – Italian Cultural Center to unload donations of non-perishable foods. The donations will be split between three food banks in the area:<p>

Volunteers will be observing social distancing protocol, including wearing masks & gloves to unload any food donations, simply pull up “pop the trunk” as they say, and we will unload the donated items. For those who are interested in seeing the progress made to transform the building from its former state to its newly updated condition (a work still in progress) you will be able to drive around the building to see the changes made to the building exterior & grounds. While the pandemic will limit us holding any sort of “open house”, we may be able to offer small groups of people socially distanced tours of the interior on as “as available” basis.

Suggested Items to donate (that have not been opened or expired):

  • Canned food- tomatoes, sauce, meat, tuna, soup, fruit, vegetables, peanut butter, jelly
  • Meal in a can- chili, stew, ravioli . . .
  • Meal in a box- burger/tuna helper, macaroni and cheese . . .
  • Packaged-pasta, cereal, oatmeal, pancake mix, rice, beans . . .
  • Hygiene – shampoo, toilet paper, toothpaste, soap, feminine products, deodorant, sanitizer
