How do I know if I qualify for food?

The only qualification for food is that you have a need for food based on your own judgment and that you reside in the zip codes 98270, 98271 or 98259. 

If you have an immediate need and your local food bank (check here) is not available to serve you, we are here to help!

I don't have a car. Can I still get food?

Yes, but your options are currently limited. Community Transit bus routes 201, 202 & 222 stop near the intersection of State Ave & 88th St NE. It is a short walk to the food bank from the bus stop. Our shuttle service providing transportation home with groceries will return in the future.


If you are currently experiencing a food emergency and you do not have transportation, please contact the Food Bank.

Why is this service ZIP code specific?
