This April we are proud to be partnering with a non-profit that has served our community for more than 45 years, FISH of Vancouver! Their name FISH stands for Friends in Service to Humanity and are guided by the statement “Feeding Families. Nourishing Children.” This non-profit serves nutritionally balanced food to hungry families and individuals of all ages in times of emergency. FISH is able to provide a 3-5 day supply
of food once a month to families that include 37% children. During a given month, more than 5,000 men, women, and children are provided with emergency food. FISH is located in West Vancouver (906 Harney Street) which has the lowest income level in Clark County. FISH of Vancouver is run by volunteers and funded entirely by donations. There are currently more than 70 volunteers, some that have been serving with them for more than 20 years! With the help of these volunteers, FISH is able to serve those in need Monday through Friday from 10 AM to 3 PM.
The members of our community that stop by FISH come from a variety of ages, ethnicities, and cultural backgrounds. Having a variety of food supplies and household items on hand help to accommodate these individuals during their times of need. You can help support these community members and FISH through both food and financial donations. If you would rather donate your time to this organization, they are always looking for more amazing volunteers! We are honored to partner with an organization that serves our community through a hands on approach.
