Bellingham Food Bank is Whatcom County's largest emergency food provider. Our mission is to reduce hunger in Bellingham by providing wholesome foods to those in need. We meet this mission by supplying groceries to tens of thousands of hungry Bellingham families every year.
Our food bank is available to anyone living in Bellingham. We operate with a small staff and hundreds of volunteers who serve our neighbors with dignity and without judgment. Single individuals and families can visit once a week for as long as they need assistance, and folks typically leave our food bank with 50-70 pounds of nutritious food.
Serving Our Community in a Variety of Ways
In addition to feeding Bellingham's hungry families, we serve as the main warehouse and distribution center for all Whatcom County food banks. We also coordinate the Small Potatoes Gleaning Project, the Garden Project and Victory Gardens. To learn more about Bellingham Food Bank's programs, please click on the links below.
