Annie’s Community Kitchen, a free community dinner offered at Edmonds Lutheran Church recently received a grant for $10,000.00 from the Hazel Miller Foundation.
Founded in 2005, Annie’s Kitchen serves hundreds of free meals each week. Not only do they offer their hospitality every Wednesday evening, but they deliver hot meals to a Veteran’s shelter and to Tent City as well. Their gleaning program provides free foodstuffs to a large number of other local feeding programs as well. Operating Annie’s Community Kitchen is a labor of love, solely run by volunteers, but their energy bills can be overwhelming.
Thanks to the Hazel Miller Foundation, a good chunk of Annie’s Kitchen electricity bill has been relieved. The local foundation recently gave Annie’s Kitchen a grant for $10,000.00 towards the purchase and installation of solar panels on the roof of Edmonds Lutheran Church. It’s making a big difference in the bills and it’s also a sends a great message to the community of Edmonds about renewable energy options.
The Hazel Miller Foundation, established as a trust by Mrs. Miller, is dedicated to serving the citizens of Edmonds and South Snohomish County, Washington. Hazel and her husband, Morris Miller, were commited members of the Edmonds’ community.
The Foundation’s mission is to support programs and projects that serve the public’s benefit, especially in the areas of education and youth services, poverty alleviation and hunger, civic and community services and amenities, the environment, and culture and the arts.
“We are so grateful for the Hazel Miller’s generosity. They are making a profound impact in our community,” said Bob Snyder, master gleaner with Annie’s Community Kitchen. “This is a creative and earth-friendly way to support community based organizations in Edmonds”.
