Frequently Asked Questions

Your Presence Is All That's Required!

In our ongoing efforts to safeguard our community—especially those who are immunocompromised or elderly—, we kindly request that only one member per family enters the food bank to shop.

Should you require any assistance during your visit, or if you need to designate someone to shop on your behalf, please do not hesitate to inform us. We are more than willing to accommodate your needs and ensure a smooth and comfortable experience for you.

What to Bring:

What Food Bank Do I Go To?

Everyone in need will be served. There are income requirements to receive government food but all other food is served without restriction. You may come in for food once a month.  You can make unlimited visits to our bread and produce room.  

What if I earn too much?

While the Des Moines Area Food Bank is particularly mindful of extending its support to and serving the needs of local communities—as far away as the City of Seatac and the west hill region of Kent—we welcome everyone! 

Should you have any inquiries about our offerings, or if you need assistance in finding a food bank nearer to you, please reach out to us at 206-878-2660,—or better yet, just drop by for a visit!

Rest assured, we are here for you. No one will be turned away!
