    Thanks to everyone that made donations and gave the better part of a Saturday for this cause. The weather was perfect and the roads were a blast.

    This year's Food Drive went excellent in spite of a slightly disappointing turnout. I believe it was ten (10) Mini's that met at the Redmond Towne Center Starbucks for caffeinated or non-caffeinated refreshments.

    We then jumped into our Mini's and drove around the block to deliver food & dollars to the Redmond drop off site. I don't have the exact totals, but I believe we totaled about 255 lbs of food, and close to $1325 or something like that. This included $500 from the club, with the rest being $ donations brought by the 10 Mini's in attendance.

    Most of us (I think one Mini had to leave) then headed up the hill to Tim and Patti's for a light breakfast of donuts, muffins, bacon, sausage, juice, etc...

    Following the breakfast, the remaining Mini's (minus 2) headed out for a spirited drive through the twisty roads around the Boyd residence in East King County. After an hour plus of fun driving, we finished off with Lunch at the 3 Lions Pub in Redmond.

    All in all a good day. Thanks to Tim & Patti for organizing and hosting us all.

    For any of us wondering what foods to bring to the Food Drive, here is some verbiage directly from the NW Harvest website regarding their preferences for food donations:

    Northwest Harvest can use any nonperishable food or monetary donations. If you prefer to donate food, select shelf-stable food with the lowest saturated fats and refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour). We buy white rice, beans, oats, pasta and tomato products in bulk, so we encourage you to donate other items. Here are some suggestions (ranked by importance):

    General food items:
    Beef stew, chili and similar meals with low salt, sugar and saturated fats
    Canned fruit, especially with low sugar (but not artificial sweeteners)
    Canned fish or meat
    Peanut butter (plastic jars are preferred)
    Canned vegetables (low sodium)
    Brown rice
    Whole grain pastas
    Canned tomato sauces
    Shelf-stable milk

    Infant and baby foods:
    Baby formula
    Jars of baby food
    Powdered or canned milk
    Infant cereal

    We also accept baby diapers.

    Please feel free to drive whatever car will get you to the event. The most important part of this event is to raise money for NW Harvest. Please don't let the weather or your Mini project prevent NW Harvest from getting the money they need to help people get food.

    If you would like to donate but can't make it contact me. I will take PayPal, checks, food, whatever is needed.

    2016 King 5 Northwest Harvest food Drive

    2016 King 5 Northwest Harvest Food Drive
    This is the 10th year that S.A.M.O.A. will be participating in the King 5 Northwest Harvest food drive and this year it takes place on December 3rd 2016
    We’re going to change it up a bit! This year the plan is to meet at 9:00 am at Starbucks at the Redmond Town Center. The address is 16500 NE 74th St. on the lower level in the center of the town center. There is plenty of covered parking on the north side attached to the town center so you can stay dry from the car to Starbucks. We will leave the parking garage around 9:30 and drop off food and cash donations at the Redmond drop site and then take the scenic drive up Union Hill rd. to the Boyd’s place for some pastries, fruit, coffee, tea and juice, and probably meats! After visiting and eating we’ll be off to exercise the Minis on a few of East King county’s finest roads
    Remember.
    1. This is the 10th year that the club has participated in this food drive.
    2. Enjoy the fellowship of other Mini owners.
    3. Exercise Minis.
    4. Old fashion “Cake” doughnuts!
    5. Most important, Food and Cash donations. You know the drill, weigh your donations and money equals a pound per dollar, and let Tim or Patti know.
