U-District Pantry

Our U-District Pantry is open for in-person shopping on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and FridayWe offer fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, eggs or frozen meat, canned and dried goods, toiletries, baby formula, diapers, and pet food plus connections to important community resources. 

We try to provide food for several days, but please follow posted  guidelines so that food is available for all our customers.

We do our best, but sometimes we won’t have everything you hope to find.

If there are foods you would like to find on our shelves, please let us know (leave a note in our comment box, tell a food bank staff person) so that we can look for ways to include these foods in the future. We are always excited to consider more produce, dairy, and protein options.

If you are uncomfortable shopping in our store directly, you can complete a shopping preference form and a volunteer shopper can collect your groceries while you wait.

We primarily support community members from zip codes 98102, 98103, 98105, 98112, 98115, and 98125 although all are welcome. Customers may visit once per week during any of our open hours. We can also help you find more food help if we aren’t meeting your needs. Just ask or check with the Community Information Line (just dial 2-1-1 or toll free at 1-800-621-4636) and the Crisis Connections website.

Distribution Schedule

We primarily serve Northeast Seattle residents from zip codes 98102, 98103, 98105, 98112, 98115, or 98125 and those who are currently unsheltered in our community.

On your first visit (and once a year after that), we will ask for some basic household information (address, family size and ages). This information is optional, but it really helps us plan our services. We never share your personal information unless you ask us to do so.

Come to the food bank when it is convenient for you. Our operating hours are arranged to help accommodate your schedule.

Please Observe These Community Guidelines
  1. Masks are encouraged but not currently required. This may be revised based on public health guidelines.
  2. You may receive groceries only once per week. We can help you find other resources if you need more food assistance.
  3. Help us stay on good terms with our neighbors.
    • Don’t litter. Our volunteers can help find a bin for your trash or recyclables.
    • Don’t park in our neighbors’ parking spaces, this includes the lots at Scarecrow Video and Planned Parenthood. We know parking can be a challenge, but there are often spaces on many of the nearby streets.
    • Don’t park in the bike lane, we need to keep that clear for safe travel.
  4. Try to arrive 30 minutes before our posted closing time each day. It really helps us serve you better.

Thank you!
