Food Bank Continuing Operations

Fire Destroys Ellensburg Food Bank

A food bank in Ellensburg is continuing operations this week despite losing their storage facility last week.

FISH Food Bank, a non-profit organization that serves food and other items to those in need, is temporarily operating out of Mercer Creek Church.

A fire caused by electrical wiring destroyed their downtown facility on Friday.

The food bank will serve lunch at the First Lutheran Church Wednesday and Friday at noon — food can be dropped off at Mercer Creek in the meantime.

A new permanent place will be decided over the next few months.
