Mission Statement

The mission of the White Center Food Bank is to minimize hunger while nourishing community, nurturing self-reliance, and embracing our rich cultural diversity.

Description

The White Center Food Bank was established in the early 1970's by two local churches, when the dramatic downturn in the economy forced companies to layoff thousands of workers. Gradually the economy recovered but the number of families needing assistance did not decrease, and the food bank continued to serve its neighbors. Today, it is still the primary emergency food provider for the greater White Center area. We provide emergency food for over 1,000 families, including over 1,000 children, each month. Our community is very diverse with people represented from countries all over the world. Here at the food bank we are working to provide food to families more frequently, including culturally appropriate foods and food that meets other special dietary needs. Volunteers are essential to the daily operations of the food bank. Without the support of volunteers we would not be able to offer this valuable service to families in need.
