In Person Shopping


Post pandemic, we offer a modified shopping model to still offer personal selection while keeping everyone safe.


The West Seattle Food Bank distributes food, pet food and other items to community members in need.

We offer a shopping style distribution where shoppers pick out their own items from the shelves, produce area, freezer and cooler.  This gives shoppers an opportunity to make their own choices, especially helpful for cultural or dietary needs. 

Home Delivery

We continue our Home Delivery service to households that do not reside in one of our Mobile Food Bank sites. Bags of groceries are delivered directly to their homes weekly on Wednesdays or Fridays by our incredible volunteer drivers.

For access to a larger amount of food with a better selection we encourage clients to first try to arrange for a family member or neighbor to pick up their food for them from the food bank.

If you live in a zip code we serve and cannot come to the Food Bank because of a disability give us a call at 206-932-9023.

Mobile Food Bank Program

The West Seattle Food Bank established its Mobile Food Bank off-site distribution and has now expanded to four locations that are home to the elderly, disabled or individuals not able to make it to the food bank. 

The Mobile Food Bank currently sets up a distribution weekly in the lobbies of Alaska House, Cal-Mor Circle, Westwood Heights, Cottage Grove Apartments for residents only and the Senior Center of West Seattle.
