Our Shopping Model
Shopping Model On Hold Through COVID for Safety
Distributions continue at normal hours, with a modified version that still offers selection while keeping everyone safe.
In February 2017, we changed to a shopping model distribution where clients will get a shopping cart and pick out items from the shelves, produce area, freezer and cooler within the shopping area.
This gives shoppers a wider selection of choices (especially for cultural or dietary needs), time to proceed at your own pace without feeling rushed, and an overall more respectful experience.
We are grateful to the local community members helping us carry out our mission.[/caption]
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.
Our Pet Pantry distributes 25,000+ pounds of donated pet food and other accessories to families who need help taking care of their furry friends.
We do take opened dry pet food.
