Women and Children’s Free Restaurant in need of peanut butter, canned meat donations


SPOKANE, Wash. — The Women and Children’s Free Restaurant is holding a protein food drive on Thursday, to help feed families across Spokane.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the restaurant has gone from serving 2,000 women and children per week, to serving more than 16,000.

The restaurant has been distributing meals and groceries in a drive-thru at its location on North Washington. Workers at the community kitchen said they are in desperate need of peanut butter and canned meat of any type or size.

If you want to help, donations can be dropped off Thursday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the parking lot at 1408 N. Washington.
