    Right now, there are many reasons to show love and compassion for one another. ❤️

    Our hearts ache over the death of George Floyd and the troubles of the past few days. We mourn for friends and loved ones who have lost their lives to coronavirus while doing our best to stay positive and help neighbors in need. And with Pride Month upon us, we are proud to be a community that welcomes all people, no matter how they identify or who they love.

    As a small gesture of our love for the community, the City asked local artists Nicole Monahan and Stacey Almgren, in consultation with the Woodinville Teen Arts Council, to decorate the Fish Sculpture on Woodinville-Duvall Rd with red fabric hearts. We hope that however you’re feeling, passing by the sculpture brings some amount of joy to your day.

    We still have a lot of work to do together as a community and as a country. But one thing we do know: there can never be too much love in this world.

    EastWest Food Rescue is a grassroots effort based in Woodinville to help keep produce from going to waste in eastern Washington while families in western Washington are in need. With the commercial demand for produce declining precipitously, farmers in Eastern Washington are incurring massive financial losses and faced with a surplus of produce that must be destroyed or donated.

    Get involved in EastWest Food Rescue to help bring potatoes and other produce to Woodinville and other locations in King County. Visit their website or facebook page to learn about upcoming convoys, and volunteer to help transport, bag, or distribute food to area food banks.

    The City has provided $10,000 in grant funding to EastWest Food Rescue, to be used for fuel costs, forklift rental, payments to farmers to acquire unsold food, supplies, and safety equipment for volunteers transporting surplus food from Eastern Washington farms to Western Washington food banks.
