Mission Statement

The University District Food Bank's mission is to build a hunger-free Northeast Seattle by providing our neighbors with reliable access to healthy food and life-changing resources.

Description

Every week about 1300 families receive groceries from the University District Food Bank. Our clients include working adults, infants, children, underemployed, unemployed, seniors, disabled people, and the homeless. With the help of over 150 volunteers, giving over 250 hours a week, we distribute about 3 million pounds of food to families in Northeast Seattle.

History:
On May 4th 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 5th busiest food bank in Seattle. Currently, we are the 3rd or 4th busiest food bank in the city from the perspective of total household visits each month.
