HISTORY

In February 2012, the Queen Anne Food Bank (QAFB) opened its doors due to the overwhelming community response to the closing of Saint Vincent de Paul Meal Program in November 2011. Since our opening, the number of people we serve has continued to increase. Each month we serve 2,500 sack lunches and 350 families in our Food Bank program.

 

VISION AND VALUES

QAFB envisions a community where no one goes hungry, and our neighbors in need have equitable access to enough healthy and wholesome food to meet their needs. QAFB provides a safe and welcoming space, and service with respect and dignity.

 

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

There are many ways to support the food bank:

  • Volunteer with food bank operations
  • Coordinate a food drive
  • Advocate and raise awareness on the topics of hunger and homelessness

Of course, we welcome monetary contributions which, paired with our wholesale buying power, help us provide two meals per every dollar donated.

OUR MISSION

Queen Anne Food Bank provides healthy food assistance to low-income and homeless people in Seattle. The program serves every person that comes to our door in need, without discrimination and with respect and dignity.

 

what makes us UNIQUE

Queen Anne Food Bank is unique because it is truly a product of community efforts. With just three staff members, QAFB is able to meet the crucial need in our community because of the incredible support from our mighty core of volunteers. We are one of three programs in Seattle that has both a meal program and a food bank.
