Sequim food distribution program moves to twice monthly

Curbside pick-up through the end of December

SEQUIM — The COVID-19 Food Care Package distribution program will continue in Sequim through the end of December, with distribution days moving to twice monthly starting this month.

Care packages will be available on the following Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 14, Oct. 28, Nov. 11, Nov. 25, Dec. 9 and Dec. 23.

Drivers are asked to line up at Trinity United Methodist Church on Blake Avenue. They will be directed to volunteers, who will load vehicles with boxes of food.
