The Tulalip Tribes closing their gaming facilities due to the coronavirus has led to a windfall for the Marysville Food Bank.

Quil Ceda Creek Casino donated nearly 2,700 pounds of food Tuesday that had been ordered for the casino’s restaurants.

The food included 900 pounds of meat, 885 pounds of bread and baked goods, and 900 pounds of produce.

“The Tulalip Tribes knows that all members of our community and our neighboring communities are impacted during this difficult time. With our restaurants closed we have an abundance of food that we would love to share with those in need,” Tulalip Tribes Chairwoman Teri Gobin said.

Food bank director Dell Deierling was grateful.

“We really don’t know where we’re headed with need and supply, so this helps tremendously,” he said.

Recipients receive a number and drive up to receive their donations from the food bank, located at 4150 88th St. NE, Marysville.

Gobin said they didn’t want the food to go to waste, and they enjoy helping the community.

“The Marysville Food Bank can put this food to good use helping our neighbors feed their families… We will continue to do what we can, not only for our people, but also for our friends and neighbors,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Arlington Food Bank also received large donations Tuesday – 300 pounds of produce and dairy from Camp Killoqua and also food from The Point and Centennial Bar and Grills.
