Grand opening for new location of Food Bank

The Ballard Food Bank recently moved into its new location on Leary Ave NW from 24th Ave NW.

The new location of the Ballard Food Bank at 5130 Leary Ave. NW.

This Sunday, help celebrate the new location at the grand opening party and open house. Nancy McKinney, the executive director of the Food Bank tells us that this move would have never happened without help from many community members – from volunteers to businesses donating material. The event, to honor the community, will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the new location.

Good location, away from residential areas. Sorry, but the hobos and bums ruin it for those truly down on their luck.

It may be away from your residential area, but it is closer to mine.

I say, welcome to the neighborhood! We aren’t a-holes in our end of town.

Larry, you’re welcome to the bums who ruined the food bank for the deserving poor.

Couple of suggestions, though: buy really thick gloves to pick up the needles with and hang a ‘help wanted’ sign in your window to scare them off your property.
