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
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.
