Where Your Donations Go

Your monetary donations go even further than food donations! We purchase food at wholesale prices from non-profit distributors and participate in bulk buys with other food banks in South King County. Your donations allow us to pay for insurance on our vans, which picked up over 1 million pounds of donated food last year!


Want to donate in person or by mail? Here's How


​​Food Donations

Donations to the food bank (both food and cash) can be made any weekday morning from 8:30 am until noon. The entrance is at the bottom of the parking lot.
