Nearly 2 Tons of Food Collected for FISH Food Bank

CWU students and the community donated more than 3,500 pounds of food and hundreds of household items including furniture, electronics, and clothes this month to help the FISH Food Bank in Ellensburg.

The items were collected as part of the annual Don't Waste, Donate program organized by the Center for Leadership and Community Engagement. An accompanying food drive on campus and throughout town was organized by the Equity and Services Council.

Don’t Waste, Donate gathers reusable items from students cleaning out their dorm rooms and apartments before summer break. The donations are redistributed through the Office of Surplus and Asset Management and sold at auctions throughout the year. The proceeds go to the FISH Food Bank.
