3rd community lunch in Pike Place Market brings our neighbors to the table

Posted May 14, 2014

Yesterday, May 13, was the 3rd month community lunch in Pike Place Market. Over 100 members of the Market community came to the Atrium kitchen for a FREE, healthy lunch! Members of the Pike Market Senior Center, volunteers at the Food Bank, teachers at the Preschool, Pike Place Market staff, and many others joined in on the fun. Thanks to the 15 number of volunteers who prepped, served, and did the dishes!
