For several years, Calvary Lutheran Church has opened up their South Kitchen Porch doors from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, for a Sack Lunch program, feeding the needy residents of Federal Way, along with visitors from the I-5 corridor.

In response to receiving a frequent surge of donations from local businesses, Calvary is opening a Temporary Fresh Food Bank on Fridays from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. now through the end of August.

Through the summer, Calvary will be redistributing local donations of fresh produce and limited dairy. Supplies are limited; items vary (potatoes and onions are the most common); and are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Calvary Lutheran Church is located at 2415 S. 320th Street in Federal Way. For more information, call the Calvary Church office at 253-839-0344.
