Born in the wake of economic hardship, the West Seattle Food Bank opened its doors in 1979 with a mission to fight hunger in the local community.

Starting small, they distributed canned goods from a church basement. Over the years, fueled by unwavering dedication and community support, the Food Bank has blossomed into a vital resource for West Seattle residents facing food insecurity.

It is our priority to keep our community healthy while continuing to ensure all our neighbors have access to food, emergency financial assistance, clothing, diapers, and other basic needs.

Emergency financial assistance helps with rent and utilities, and the Clothesline program offers clothing vouchers. The Baby & Child Corner caters to specific needs of families with young children.
