A note to the Sand Point community from the organizers…

Over the past 13 years, the Sand Point neighborhood has generously donated over $31,500 and 33,000 pounds of food and toiletries through the annual Sand Point Thanksgiving food drive.


As we all know, the need for your support remains as important as ever.

In light of last year’s incredible success, we will keep our 2021 food drive virtual.

The food bank will stretch your donation dollars surprisingly far, and because we want to do our part to limit community contact as much as possible, we will be doing an on-line and mail-in fundraising drive.

  • On-line: Donate directly to the “Sand Point Neighborhood Food Drive” on the University District website.  Choose the “Donate Now” button  at https://www.udistrictfoodbank.org/donate then direct your gift to the “Sand Point Neighborhood Food Drive” from the next drop down menu.
  • By check: Make checks payable to “University District Food Bank Mail” or just “UDFB” and mail them to
    University District Food Bank, 5017 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle, WA 98105  Put “Sand Drive Neighborhood Food Drive” on the memo line so we can count your participation in this year’s totals.
  • Food donations: If you are unable to make a cash donation at this time but still want to support the food bank with a donation, you can drop off food donations Monday – Saturday. Check the food donation guidelines at https://www.udistrictfoodbank.org/donate/food/   Key needs this year are for toiletries (toilet paper and soap are great options), large diapers, hearty soups, crunchy peanut butter and alternative nut butters, easy to microwave meals, dairy alternatives (soy, oat, and rice milk are popular), and new pairs of socks.

Happy Thanksgiving!
