    The Mukilteo Community Garden (MCG) extends its sincerest thanks to the patrons of the Mukilteo QFC for their overwhelming charitableness.  When asked to donate fresh produce to support the Mukilteo Food Bank, the customers were extremely generous and donated 683 lbs. of fruits and vegetables and over $100.  WOW.  That is definitely a record.

    On Sunday, April 29th from 10am to 1pm the Garden hosted a “Fresh Fruits and Veggie” Drive in front of the QFC.   Customers were greeted by MCG volunteers and were provided a suggested list of “fresh fruits and vegetables” and were asked to donate.   And the shoppers answer was amazing! One man came out of the store with a Starbucks for him and a bag of groceries for the food bank. 

    The garden would also like to thank Gloria Flatterich, Lorie Rynhard, Ashley Pritt, Danielle O’Keefe and Julie Kelly for manning both entrances.  MCG also thanks QFC for allowing the garden to host the event at their store.  A second food drive will be conducted in the fall, so plan to come out and donate your time or fresh produce.
