The West Seattle Food Bank is committed to providing food security and community connections to our neighbors in need. This is provided through our ongoing programs:
Food Distribution- The West Seattle Food Bank offers a"shopping style"distribution method for our facility based distribution to meet the needs of the diverse population that we serve. In our "shopping area" families stroll the isles with a shopping cart and choose the foods that meet with their dietary needs and cultural preferences.

The Bookcase - Providing the children and adults we serve with free, donated books and services to encourage healthy reading habits.
Community Connections - Helping the families we serve access additional information and services from dozens of partner organizations.
Mobile Food Bank & Home Delivery Programs - Mobile Food Bank sets up an off-site distribution weekly in the lobbies of four locations for the disabled, elderly and others not able to make it to the food bank or we deliver a bag of groceries directly to their homes through our Home Delivery Program.
