Are you looking for an activity that incorporates teamwork and helps your community in the process? With us, you can check off both those boxes!

We are looking for groups that want to help the Pike Market Food Bank from the comfort of their own site!

These projects include ordering and packing supplies together to make completed bags with your team. These supply bags are then used to help the three programs the Food Bank has:


  • Grocery Distribution : This is our main program that provides fresh produce, canned/dry goods, and other grocery items to all who visit us on a weekly basis.
  • Home Delivery : This program is geared toward people who can’t visit us safely due to being homebound or disabled. We provide a weekly bag of groceries right to their door!
  • No Cook : This program is focused on providing ready-to-eat items for our visitors who do not have consistent access to kitchens or are homeless.

IDEAL Groups Have/Are...

  • At least 4 participants
  • Excited to work together as a team
  • At least 2 weeks before their ideal event date
  • Able to deliver the completed packing project down to the Food Bank

WE WILL...

  • Go over the different types of packing projects

  • Work with you to choose the best date for the event

Mission Statement

In downtown Seattle, the Pike Market Senior Center strives to make each day better and safer for older adults; the Pike Market Food Bank serves people of all ages who face hunger. Together, we provide services, activities, and support that lead to more self sufficient and fulfilling lives.

Description

The Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank is located in the historic Pike Place Market. We have been serving our neighbors in the heart of Seattle since 1978.

The Senior Center serves people age 55 and up. Membership is free and there are no fees for meals, services or regular activities. While people from all walks of life are members of PMSC, we are pioneers in offering senior center programming to elders who are homeless.

The Food Bank serves people of any age, offering free groceries, ready-to-eat food for clients experiencing homelessness, and home delivery for qualified residents of Downtown Seattle. We serve 800 in-person grocery clients weekly and distribute over 300 grocery deliveries.
