Like other food pantries in the Northwest, Washington Gorge Action Programs’ food bank has seen an increase in demand in recent months. WAGAP serves Klickitat and Skamania counties with mobile and in-building food banks. WAGAP’s Jennifer Pauletto says there are a variety of factors involved, including decrease in SNAP payments with pandemic-related increases expiring, and the rising cost of food. The cost of WAGAP acquiring food has also increased. WAGAP Food For All will hold a fundraising concert, wine tasting, and picnic on August 12 at 5:30 at AniChe Cellars in Underwood.
