Catholic Community Services (CCS), along with Pacific Coast Fruit Company (PCFC), is coordinating food delivery sites for the Farms-to-Families free food distribution.
Catholic Community Services has offered to bring a truck to St. Hubert’s Church in Langley with 500 boxes each with the approximate contents listed below. (a total of 1500 boxes)
Delivery is currently scheduled to arrive on South Whidbey on Saturday, August 15th.
Boxes of fresh perishable foods will be trucked in by refrigerated vehicles. We want to get fresh farm food out to people in need due to COVID.
