Shop 4% Friday on January 25th to Give Back to Skagit County Meals on Wheels

On the 4th Friday of every month, you shop and, together, we give! Skagit Valley Food Co-op’s 4% Friday Community Shopping Day recipients receive 4% of the day’s sales at the Co-op, so the more you put in your cart, the more you give back! On Friday, January 25th, 4% of sales will be donated to Skagit County Meals on Wheels.

The Meals on Wheels Program provides nutritious, noontime meals to senior citizens, age 60 and older, who have difficulty leaving their home unassisted and who are unable to prepare their own meals.

Skagit County is one of the few programs in Washington State that still delivers hot, nutritious meals to seniors in the community. By using only the freshest ingredients, meals are prepared each delivery day at our central kitchen and are distributed at lunchtime by volunteers. These deliveries provide daily one-on-one contact that many seniors look forward to every day.

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

4% Friday Funds will go toward maintain the current program level. With the increased client base, the goal is to continue to provide clients with the freshest, homemade meals possible, instead of frozen or pre-packaged meals.
