PACIFIC COUNTY — Each year during Thanksgiving, food banks in Pacific County run out of bread. This year you can help. Saturday, Nov. 17, is Family Volunteer Day and across the county families are coming together to make a difference by making bread. This day of service celebrates the power of families who work together to support their neighborhoods.

Through a grant from generationON and the Walt Disney Company with support from King Arthur Flour and the Washington State University Bread Lab, Pacific County WSU Extension 4-H Youth Development is hosting nine locations where families can come together and make bread: one loaf to take home and enjoy and the second to donate to the local food pantries. At this free kid-friendly event, 4-H leaders and members will be on hand to help families make bread in a bag.

Donated loaves will be collected at the end of the day and distributed. This is an opportunity for families to make some new friends, learn about yeast bread, and spend time together while making a meaningful difference. The kitchens will be open between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. or until supplies run out. Gluten-free and organic will be available in some locations.
