EMERGENCY food assistance needed for families effected by the COVID-19 crisis.


There is no better time to give then now. Please give whatever you can – be it a $5 donation or $500 donation – to show love and support for the people and communities in which we live. Amid wide spread business closures, thousands of community members who would have never expected to need help from the Food Bank, have found themselves suddenly out of work, and in immediate need of food assistance. The extreme increase of requests for help has put a major strain on the Food Bank, and our available food supply. PLEASE HELP us ensure no person, family or child struggles with having enough food to eat during the COVID-19 crisis.

Your donation will allow us to continue providing family meal boxes FREE to anyone in need. Your donation will also support our Meals ‘til Monday program which is currently providing FREE food every week to students in need during the school closures. While we understand that this crisis is effecting everyone, we are trying to meet the basic human needs right now, which is providing food for those who without your help, would not have access to it.

The impact that the COVID-19 crisis will have on our community will be severe and long lasting. Even after businesses re-open, it will take a long time for everyday life to get back to normal. If you pledge a recurring monthly donation of $25 or more, or donate $300 or more annually you automatically become a PROUD SPONSOR of our Friends of the Food Bank program! By doing this you can help ensure that there is enough food to be shared equally, and sustainably, throughout the months to come. Making the compassionate choice to become a Friend of the Food Bank, is showing your ongoing commitment to caring for those in need, especially in a time of crisis. (Make sure your donation frequency is set to MONTHLY when you check out)

What is food insecurity?

1 in 8 people face hunger in Western Washington. 1 in 5 of them are kids. Most food bank guests have jobs and nearly all visitors have homes. Financial and medical difficulties force many people to choose between food, utilities, and medicine. In other words...people just like you and I struggle.

Hunger impacts all of us. Hungry children can't learn, hungry adults are less productive and miss work more frequently, and hungry seniors often must choose between medicine and food.

With the generosity of businesses, organizations and individuals, we are able to offer relief and help end hunger in our neighborhoods.
