We have a number of customers who can't make it to the food bank to shop, so we offer them a Home Delivery program.

This program is expanding again to include more deliveries on Friday (we already deliver to customers on Monday and Thursday weekly).

Join us for a few hours weekly to pack bags of food for customers!

Description

White Center Food Bank provides food access to Washington state residents for no fee.

The White Center Food Bank began in the mid-1970’s as an emergency response to assist struggling families and individuals in the greater White Center and Highline areas during a major economic downturn. Much like today, many in the community were facing difficult economic conditions that left them in need of food resources.

In 1982 the White Center Emergency Food Association was formally incorporated and is today known as the White Center Food Bank, serving 57,989 individuals (19,569 families) in 2017. Current programs include daytime and seniors-only food distributions; a mobile food bank for seniors and disabled clients; a Baby Pantry for diapers and formula; culturally relevant food grown onsite; cultural foods buying program; and grocery rescue. Intake services are provided in five languages, and all written materials are provided in six languages.

In 2024, we moved into our new, permanent home, making way for affordable housing at our old site. Join us in our beautiful new site to serve the community with dignity and care!
