Thanks to all who kept Federal Way Monday community suppers alive

Thank you for giving front-page attention to the return of (Monday night) community suppers here in Federal Way. We were becoming convinced they would end after Steel Lake Presbyterian sold, and it took a lot of time and a lot of miles to save them. We couldn’t have done it without the help of some wonderful people.

City Councilmember Martin Moore was our biggest champion while we worked to save the suppers. He really was a godsend, working on and on, even as a lot of others thought it was hopeless. Pastor Casey Treat at Christian Faith Center also went above and beyond. And all of the volunteers at the Federal Way Community Caregiving Network who have served at the suppers, continue to serve, and are the backbone of our attempts to ease hunger here in our community.

Thank you, Federal Way, and thank you everyone who helped.

Hope Elder, Federal Way
