La Conner Sunrise Food Bank bright spot amid virus crisis

Pandemic or not, the sun doesn’t set on the La Conner Sunrise Food Bank.

“The biggest message,” says Michelle Havist, director of the local food pantry, “is just that we’re here. There are people, clients and donors alike, still learning that La Conner has a food bank.”

And it is one for which community support has increased during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, she said.

“The community has been great,” said Havist, who doubles as general manager of the Weekly News. “Donations picked up as soon as COVID-19 hit.”

Those donations include fresh produce from La Conner area farms and residences.
