Schedule your next appointment

As of Monday Nov. 6, 2023 we have switched to an appointment-based service system. This has addressed the growing safety concern for our volunteers and clients that early arrivals caused.

We are open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays (once a month), and Fridays. You can book a week in advance. To schedule your next visit, please click the link below or give us a call at 360-658-1054 on Tuesday through Thursday between 9:30am and Noon. Check back often for openings as there may be cancellations.

Please only make one appointment per week per family so that everyone that is in need has the opportunity to schedule an appointment for service.

NOTE TO OUR VALUED CUSTOMERS: Effective March 31st We have switched to a new software system. (Food Bank Manager by SoxBox). Thank you for your patience while we transition. With the new system you will need to create an account so that you can create and keep track of your appointments. Your current food bank card is still valid, so please hang on to it.
