About Salt Of The Earth Food Blessing

Mission Statement

We are dedicated to God's promise of giving food to the hungry while creating community through compassionate service.

Description

Salt of the Earth started in 1992 as an outreach to teens on the streets of Everett. Sandra Richards partnered with a dynamic 83 year old woman named Mildred Yager who had a heart for these kids. Sandra began providing sack lunches for the teens. It started with 5 youth and word got around and it was soon 35. By this time, she was also making a hot meal. It was getting expensive for their limited income so she asked local grocery stores if they could help in any way. The stores were generous and before she knew what was happening, she was feeding teens and adults. For 3 years Sandra was picking up food 365 days a year making sack lunches, hot meals and food baskets.

Then God sent others to volunteer their time and effort to enable them to reach more people in the community. More food banks were opened and a van was donated.

We now have 5 thriving food blessing locations in the area, a monthly community meal, and we do food drops at several mercy housing & senior housing locations. Our organization is run by the love and compassion of our volunteers working together as the body of Christ. We rally together with the same heart and vision, serving our community.

We are happy to welcome new volunteers at all of our locations across Snohomish, Marysville, Everett, and Arlington!
