Food Bank Mission Statement

We purpose to be the extended arms of Jesus Christ, loving and caring for our community. In doing so, our hope is that they will see God's Love, Grace, and Truth, and that He will be glorified.

Isaiah 61:1 and Isaiah 58:7 & 10.

We also support other food banks, ministries, and organizations with food and/or clothing.

We are a Non-Profit Volunteer organization reaching the community through our food bank.

1. Approximately 6,000 people a month are helped with food and clothes in Snohomish County.

2. We serve a Hot Meal -- now each Tuesday of the month, except the first Tuesday, which is a sack lunch day.

3. At our soup kitchen our director and volunteers minister to the needy and share the Word of God, in the hopes of drawing people to sincere, life-changing faith in Jesus Christ. In the same way that the Apostle Paul shared God's Word with Felix and Drusilla, we believe in teaching about righteousness, self-control, and the judgment to come.
