What is the Take A Bite For Skagit?
The Take A Bite For Skagit is an annual dine-out event on Thursday, May 18th that directly improves the nutrition and health of our community. It’s really easy to participate! You just eat yummy food at your favorite participating restaurants. The restaurants will donate a percentage of their proceeds to Community Action’s Skagit Food Distribution Center to purchase fresh produce from local farms and give it to local food banks.
