County donates delivery van after food bank’s was stolen

King County has donated a surplus van to Puget Sound Labor Agency, a Belltown food bank. The agency’s delivery van was stolen last month.

“When we were informed about the stolen van, we understood the urgency and stepped up to help,” King County Executive Dow Constantine said in a news release Tuesday. “Rather than sit idle in a County surplus yard, I’m pleased we can put this van back into service to our community.”

“Replacing this stolen van helps those who would otherwise go hungry,” said King County Council Chair Larry Phillips, who represents the Belltown neighborhood.

“The Puget Sound Labor Agency’s Belltown Food Bank helps individuals and their families get back on their feet, and I’m pleased that this surplus King County van will be used to keep assisting the community” he said.

Located at First and Broad, Puget Sound Labor Agency provides food and hygiene items for more than 22,000 households in Queen Anne, Belltown, Magnolia, South Lake Union, and downtown each week.
