FISH News: Thank you for sharing your blessings with FISH. Your generosity makes a difference in the lives of all who rely on FISH for groceries and meals. In 2021 FISH will be celebrating its 50th anniversary as the resource for food for any Kittitas County resident who is hungry and needs help. It will be a year of reflection on our beginning and excitement for the future as we move toward the realization of a home of our own at last. From the beginning, FISH has been a community partner working with the churches initially and through the years moving to partnerships with the healthcare community, academia and other social services agencies. The vision for our new building is to expand the outreach of our partners to become a one-stop-shop fop anyone who needs help. You will hear more about that throughout next year.
