Our Mission is to Minimize Hunger...

While nourishing community, nurturing self-reliance and embracing our rich cultural diversity. 

The White Center Food Bank began unofficially in the mid-1970’s as an emergency response to assist struggling families and individuals in the greater White Center and Highline areas during a major economic downturn.  Much like today, many in the community were facing difficult economic conditions that left them in need of food resources.

We were there then. We are here now.

Please visit us at the White Center Food Bank if you are in need of assistance. We are here to help.

Your gifts make a difference!

We are supported by gifts from private donors and businesses that make sure that children are well nourished, that seniors live in dignity, and that all members of our community have access to fresh, healthy food.  Your gifts truly make a difference. We couldn’t do what we do without you. Thank you!

Your financial donations allow us to buy fresh, healthy foods to supplement what is donated. Without these gifts, we could not provide milk, eggs, meat, and culturally appropriate foods such as tortillas, rice, beans, halal meat, and more.

We also accept in-kind donations, M-F, 8AM - 4PM. Please donate food that hasn’t been opened and isn’t expired. If you wouldn’t eat it, please reconsider donating it.
