Description

The Marysville Community Food Bank had its beginnings in the rectory of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in 1974 when a handful of volunteers got together to distribute food out the back door to the hungry and homeless. Food was stored in a former laundry area, then a bedroom. Between 30 and 40 families a week were served.
Over the years, the Food Bank operations have grown. In 1987, it was formally organized as a non-profit organization supported by 12 churches in the community, with oversight provided by a Board of Directors. Today, the food bank is a "partnership" supported by 18 community churches, service clubs, schools, businesses, volunteers, and individuals. After a few location changes over the years, the Food Bank is now located on property owned by the Archdiocese of Seattle, which generously leases the property for $1 a year.
