It was about a month ago that Plateau residents packed the Rainier Room at St. Elizabeth Hospital to learn about what services and what needs there were for the local population as it related to food programs.
Organizers called for volunteers then, and if you're interested in working to establish a compassionate, sustainable and local food program to serve Plateau residents, the first step will be attending tonight's meeting for those who want to work at that committee level.
In an email reminder, Plateau Outreach Ministries director Britt Nelson said, "We look forward to this first step in building a sustainable, community-wide program to eliminate hunger!!"
Those who can't make it or who would like to help but not necessarily at this level will be updated on the progress and what opportunities there are later to step in and lend a hand, she said.
Nelson, along with Enumclaw Senior Center manager Jobyna Nickum and Franciscan Foundation campaign coordinator Jackie Madill are spearheading this project.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Garden Room at St. Elizabeth Hospital (on the 1st floor next to Diagnostic Imaging)
