Company description

For nearly four decades, University District Food Bank has helped prevent hunger in Northeast Seattle neighborhoods. Our mission to "build a hunger-free Northeast Seattle by providing our neighbors with reliable access to healthy food and life-changing resources" recognizes the urgency of providing access to healthy, culturally familiar food today and building systemic changes which create equity and opportunity for our customers long term.   

Each week, more than 1,300 different families receive the groceries they need to prepare nutritionally balanced meals at home through our University District pantry location. Modeled after a grocery store, our customers shop for the groceries they want directly. 

Our home delivery program reaches almost 400 home-bound customers every week. Our backpack program, at 16 nearby schools, provides almost 700 kids with meals and snacks for the weekend when school meals aren’t available.

Our two off site food pantries located at Mercy Magnuson Place and North Seattle College provide groceries to another 200+ households a week.

Last year, we had 70,000 customer visits and distributed 3 million pounds of food.
