At Farmer Frog's new pad, nonprofit helps feed 1.5M Washingtonians

SNOHOMISH ó A Snohomish County nonprofit has opened a new hub to distribute several hundred thousand pounds of food per month to families in need.

On Wednesday, workers at Farmer Frog lifted pallets of produce by forklift onto trucks: 50-pound boxes of apples, 25-pound bags of beets, boxes of lettuce and crates of milk.

Farmer Frog founder and co-executive director Zsofia Pasztor oversaw the operation south of Snohomish. Early in the pandemic, she said, the nonprofit gave away as many as 10 semi-trucks of food each day. The work has slowed. Nowadays itís more like six trucks a week.

Still, need remains high as inflation has squeezed budgets.
