Welcome to the oldest food bank in Skagit County, Washington, proudly serving Skagit Valley for over 50 years. Our mission is to provide food to those in the community who may be food insecure and we work hard to do so. We offer a few different food services depending on your situation. If you are unsure of what might work for you please reach out so we can help.
Signing up is easy. We are here to serve our community and have made the sign up process as easy and straightforward as possible. The only information we ask for is your name, household size, birthdates, and address. We do not ask for your social security number or any financial information. Your information will always remain confidential. We want to get food to you and have a system in place that eliminates the barriers that keep us from doing so. If you’re in a position where you need food, we encourage you to come in any Tuesday between 11 AM and 6 PM, sign up, and get some food to feed yourself and your family the same day. Life is full of ups and downs, unexpected hardships, and unpredictable financial stressors. There is no shame in needing our services nor do we judge you.
Whatever your situation, we are here to help!
