Sustainable Renton, now in partnership with St. Mathews Lutheran Church, in the Renton Highlands has been operating a very successful, Free drive-thru Grocery Store, every Monday night between 5:30 and 7:30 PM.
As of July 6th, 2020 and was successfully handing out 1500-3000 pounds of food per week, serving as many as 300 families. Now as of February 2021 we are handing out anywhere from 20 to 30 thousand pounds of food every Monday evenings, serving approximately 700 to 1000 families. The data shows approximately 98% in Renton zip codes. All this has been accomplished with only volunteers, starting with 17 volunteers we now utilize 50+ volunteers to meet the demand every week.
