Throughout September, the Convention Center will be hosting a food drive with the Lynnwood Food Bank. How can you donate?
It's easy...just drop off non-perishable food items in marked bins in the main lobby of the Convention Center during normal business hours (Monday-Friday between 8am-5pm or when the building is open for events in the
evenings and on weekends). The Lynnwood Food Bank has served over 70,000 people with food during the pandemic, providing free groceries to families and individuals in need throughout the City of Lynnwood.
