Financial donations to the food bank can be made online, by mail, or in person.
Donations to the food bank (both food and cash) can be made any week day morning from 8:30 am until noon. Enter the door at the bottom of the parking lot. Click the box at left for the map and directions.
Needed Items include food for our regular service (canned meat, soup, vegetables, fruit and baby food) and food for our school backpack program (such as EasyMac, individual apple sauce or fruit cups, oatmeal packets and small 100% fruit juices). Paper grocery bags are also a constant need and something which we regularly have to purchase; we appreciate any donation of clean, untorn paper bags. Non-food items in demand include toilet paper, diapers, soap, laundry detergent, and pet food.
Your dollars can go even further. We purchase food at wholesale prices from non-profit distributors and participate in bulk buys with other food banks in South King County. Sometimes we can get meat for just the cost of processing. Financial contributions can be sent to:
