Walk-Up Food Bank

With the current public health precautions taken because of the coronavirus, our grocery store shopping has been suspended. Today, we provide personal shopping services through a walk-up window.

A shopping preferences sheet will be provided when you arrive. Our volunteers will use your specific preferences to build you a box of food that tries to meet your food specific food needs. We do our best but sometimes don’t have everything you request.

We are open for walk-up services on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and FridayWe offer fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy, frozen meat, canned and dried goods, toiletries, baby formula, diapers, and pet food plus connections to important community resources. 

We primarily support community members from zip codes 98102, 98103, 98105, 98112, 98115, and 98125. 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) and the Crisis Clinic website.

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.

  4. Help us stay on good terms with our neighbors.
    • Don’t litter, use our trash can out front. If it is full, let a volunteer know so we can empty it.
    • Don’t park in our neighbors’ parking spaces, his 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.
