Food takeout extras.

We all get takeout food delivered and often it comes with extra stuff we don’t need.

Sometimes that’s utensils when we have perfectly good silverware already. Or it’s ketchup and mustard when we’d rather have our french fries plain.

Fortunately, there is a group of people in our community who need this stuff and we are excited to feature this as a Ridwell category. Whether you’ve been saving these up already or will start to now, we can take any amount off your hands and put them to good use.

Partnering with Pike Market Food Bank

The Pike Market Food Bank has been serving our community since 1979. Their mission is to make sure all residents of downtown Seattle have access to quality and nutritious food. A Ridwell customer introduced us to them and in particular their no-cook emergency lunch program.

Through this program, they serve people facing homelessness who lack what’s necessary to put a meal together or consume it. Now your takeout extras can make eating that much easier by providing tools and added flavoring.
