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.
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.
Backpack Program - Providing school children at risk of hunger with a "backpack" of food, including six kid-friendly meals, to ensure they have nutritious food for the weekend.
Pet Pantry - Distributing donated pet food and other accessories to families who need help taking care of their furry friends.
