After a record breaking day of service on Thursday, today the Pantry shattered all records – over 250 households came for emergency food bags and pre-packaged produce. This is the beginning of a huge upsurge of need in our community. Many of our neighbors will be economically dislocated, unemployed, or otherwise impacted by the ongoing public health crisis and its aftershocks. We need all hands on deck to serve our community and fulfill the need we are seeing.
Find out today how to volunteer! Or, in lieu of volunteering, consider sending Tukwila Pantry a donation. Like us on Facebook to make sure you’re up to date on all the Pantry’s activities and needs.

Yesterday, March 24th, Tukwila Pantry had a
record-breaking day of service. Over 100 households came to the Pantry and
received their meals!
In response to this tremendous need during the
ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis, the Pantry is continuing its operations!
But it can’t do that without your support. In order to further protect clients
and volunteers, the Pantry is shifting operations to only hand out lunch and
emergency boxes on Tuesdays and distribute bagged goods on Thursdays and
Saturdays. This will ensure that we can further enforce the social distancing
measures that are required by the current crisis.
The need due to this crisis is already
enormous, but that need will only grow in the upcoming months. As our neighbors
suffer from economic dislocation and unemployment, the Pantry will become an
ever more important resource for our community. We are staying open and
operational to meet that need, but we will be dependent on your support to meet
the growing demand.
How can you support the Pantry at this critical time? We need volunteers on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings to ensure that food is ready for distribution on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. You can also volunteer on a distribution days. Follow us on Facebook for updates and visit our volunteer page to sign up.
I can’t volunteer. What can I do? You can still support the Pantry! Some of us can’t volunteer due to our own personal or family circumstances, but we can still help! If that’s the case for you, consider visiting our donation page to ensure the Pantry can continue operating during this critical time for our community!
My business has food that it would like to donate. How can we do that? Visit our contact page to tell us about your donation. If you can’t bring it to us, we can come get it!
