Shop 4% Friday on February 26th to Support Skagit County Meals on Wheels

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! This year Skagit Valley Food Co-op has partnered with Skagit Community Foundation to make 4% Friday twice as nice with Double Donation Days! Skagit Community Foundation will be matching all of our 4% Friday giving for 2021.

Now, when you shop 4% Friday Community Shopping Days, your purchase will have twice the impact: on Friday, February 26th, we’re donating 4% of sales to Skagit County Meals on Wheels, and the Skagit Community Foundation will match our total to double the donation!

Skagit County Meals on Wheels provides services to meet the primary issue of hunger that exists among older adults in Skagit County.

How will your shopping trip help Skagit County Meals on Wheels?

Funds from 4% Friday will help to supply meals to the growing Meals on Wheels client base. Due to the pandemic, the program has grown by 19%. For example, one thousand dollars would supply 112 hot, homemade meals to homebound seniors in Skagit County.
