No jab, no food!
That’s the policy for the Spokane Christmas Bureau food assistance.
Even if you’re homeless or starving, you’ll get turned away without proof of COVID-19 inoculation or a negative test.
Instead of unconditionally helping neighbors during winter, the Christmas Bureau enforces medical tyranny to receive their charity.
Talk about being a real-life Grinch for Christmas.

Hungry Americans in Spokane are being turned away from the Christmas Bureau food assistance (food pantry) if they don't show proof of Covid-19 vaccination or a negative COVID test no more than 72 hours old.
How's that for compassion?! #FJB

Christmas Bureau states:
The Christmas Bureau is an annual holiday assistance program coordinated by Catholic Charities Eastern Washington, Volunteers of America, and the Spokesman-Review. The program is made possible by generous monetary funds and volunteer hours donated by community members and organizations.
Holiday assistance we provide
Grocery Voucher: Families and individuals will receive a grocery voucher anywhere from $15-$30 dollars depending on the size of your home/family unit. You must have a valid photo ID to use the grocery voucher at participating grocery stores.
Books/Toys: Children in the home ages 17 and younger will receive one toy, and children ages 14 and younger will also receive an age-appropriate book.
Who we serve
The Christmas Bureau provides holiday assistance to individuals and families in need throughout the Greater Spokane area.
You must be an extremely low person or organization to deny donated food and toys to needy families based on their private medical information.
