Supporting Our Community with Hospitality, Respect, and Nutritious Food.

Description:
The Food Bank at St. Mary’s is a supplemental food program committed to the fight against hunger. We have been operating in Seattle’s Central District for 50 years, serving Seattle families with free nutritious food. In addition to our walk-in program, we have a home delivery service which delivers food to our homebound customers.

Other programs include no-cook bags of food for people without access to cooking facilities, hygiene supplies for both the walk-in and home delivery customers, and a baby corner which provides food, diapers, formula, and referrals to other services.


History:
Located in the Jackson neighborhood of Seattle’s Central District, The Food Bank @ St. Mary’s began as a tiny neighborhood food pantry in the early 1940’s, offering emergency assistance to families in need. The pantry provided continuous service throughout the 40’s and 50’s. By 1963, the pantry was recognized as a food bank that was open to serve all people, with regular hours and steady year-round service. In need of more space to keep up with rising customer numbers, The Food Bank @ St. Mary’s moved from a small space in the church into our present home on the ground floor of the church rectory. We now serve between 5,200 and 6,000 individuals each month.
