A food pantry pop-up is scheduled for Saturday afternoon in the Mountlake Terrace Town Center. The event is sponsored by Volunteers of America Western Washington, with assistance from the City of Mountlake Terrace and other organizations.
The pop-up runs from 2 to 5 p.m. near the former Rogers Market on 57th Avenue W. Vehicle and pedestrian access is from 230th Street SW, and traffic exiting the event must turn right onto 232nd Street SW.
A similar pop-up was held here in August 2020 and served roughly 129 households. Organizers are prepared for the potential to see more than twice that this weekend, with up to five boxes of food available per household.
“We are in a time when general holiday need has increased,” said David Jordan, project manager with VOAWW.
Traditionally, the holidays are a busy time for food banks. In addition, some households are being affected by the end of state and federal pandemic relief programs.

Access for the event is from 230th Street SW.
