Annual Fundraising Dinner: always fun, heartfelt, genuine, unique and DELICIOUS thanks to our caterers The Wayside Cafe & Deli! The event includes family-style dinner, a short program and the opportunity to support the work we do in the community.
Over 400 community members from all faiths and backgrounds will meet together, united in one common goal – to end hunger here in our community and around the world. This year, in response to Covid 19, we enjoyed our first online fundraiser! The Thurston County CROP Hunger Walk will be back!
Every summer we gather to appreciate those who have gone above and beyond for our community. This sweet event focuses on awards for those who have performed outstanding service to their community.

“Virtually Together, Genuinely Thankful”
The annual Interfaith Works Thanksgiving celebration will happen this year at 3 p.m. on November 22nd. This year's event will be online only but will be hosted by The Nalanda Institute. Our MC for the evening will be Rev. Terry Murray of Unity of Olympia.
The evening will feature video recordings of solo artists and ensembles from the interfaith network of member communities of Interfaith Works as well as short reflections on gratitude from regional faith leaders.
We will even be able to eat together....or at least at the same time. There will be foods that we hold, honor, and eat at various times during the evening to foster our gratitude and our togetherness, even if we are together virtually.
Registration and other event details coming soon...
