    – a 2021 Ram ProMaster 3500! Thanks to a grant from the Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Flexible Funding and Resiliency Programs, we are going to be able to deliver food. Some if it will go to drop point locations in Grant County. We are expanding our service area to locations there where our members live so they don’t need to drive to Ellensburg to get the food they need. Interested in donating to support our delivery expenses? Please click on the red DONATE button above.
