A Lower Queen Anne food bank that closed in November because it lacked funding has reopened.
Staff at the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a Catholic Church a few feet from Seattle Center, held a re-opening ceremony at 8:30 this morning. The food bank quietly reopened last week, said Elise Hale-Case, who runs the food bank.
For decades, people in need found a hot breakfast, a sack lunch and groceries at Sacred Heart of Jesus, a Catholic Church near Seattle Center. The program closed on Nov. 18 because it lacked the $2,500 per month it needed to pay for its single full-time employee.
Case, the full-time employee who had been running the program, said that hundreds of donations had been received since a story ran in The Seattle Times last year about the program closing.
