Food Bank

The FamilyWorks Food Bank is dedicated to providing fresh, healthy food to people and families in our community who are experiencing hunger or are in danger of experiencing hunger. Our caring staff and volunteers greet every customer with kindness and respect.

What We Offer

We work hard to ensure that the food bank is stocked with a rotating variety of nutrient-rich foods every week. In addition to fresh produce, meat and dairy products, we also strive to have a number of specialty items on hand, such as baby and infant foods and supplies, “no-cook” bags for people who are homeless, diabetic and low-salt items, and vegan, vegetarian and culturally-specific foods when possible.

How We Do It

We are able to continually offer such a variety of food and supplies, in part, because of the ongoing generosity of several local merchants who recognize the importance of supporting neighbors and have partnered with us to combat hunger.  We are grateful for the weekly deliveries of vital food and other products from Food Lifeline and Northwest Harvest.

Why It Matters

We know that regular, unencumbered access to nutritious, high-quality food is critical for improving health and well-being, creating strong family foundations and building long-term resiliency.
