History:
On May 4 th 1983, University District Food Bank opened its doors for the first time. A donated home refrigerator provided enough storage space for the perishable items we had on-hand. Our first year’s budget allowed $100 per month to purchase food to supplement what was donated. We served approximately 200 bags of groceries per week. By 1984, this number doubled, and in 1986, we were the 5 th busiest food bank in Seattle. Currently, we are the 3 rd or 4 th busiest food bank in the city from the perspective of total household visits each month.
