Join us for Hood to Hood Celebration in the Junction

Did you know that the White Center Food Bank serves not only White Center, but parts of West Seattle and Burien as well?  We enjoy participating in community events in all three of those communities, as they are all parts of our service areas.

We have a cool event coming up THIS FRIDAY, MAY 29 from noon to 6pm in West Seattle!

Hood-to-Hood-day-2015

Please join us at KEXP’s Hood to Hood Celebration in West Seattle, on California Ave SW, right by Easy Street Records.  West Seattleites raised the most money during KEXPs fundraisers in 2014, and as a celebration, KEXP will be broadcasting live, with live music, from the Junction.  Local nonprofits – including us! – have been invited to participate in the fun, and we’ll have a booth set up.  Come by to hear great music, enjoy walking through the booths (California Ave will be closed to traffic between Alaska and Oregon), and visit us.  You can just say hi, you can grab a snack (we’ll have some food!), you can sign up to volunteer, or you can ask us questions about the work that we do.

We look forward to seeing you!

GiveBIG on May 5

We have some very exciting news about GiveBIG this year, and we need your help!

One day a year, The Seattle Foundation hosts GiveBIG.  For one day only, donations made through The Seattle Foundation’s website will be stretched, making your donations go even farther than usual.  And this year, we got a very exciting surprise: The Belshaw Family Foundation has created a matching grant, and they will match your dollars 1:1 for $2500!

Your donation + GiveBIG stretch + Belshaw Family Foundation match = A BIG DIFFERENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY!

Hunger is on the rise.  Every day, we see the faces of hunger in our building here at the food bank: hard working people who just can’t stretch their paychecks to cover the essentials of food, shelter, transportation and clothing; children who struggle to learn in school because their hunger distracts them; seniors who struggled to live in dignity.  TOGETHER, we are the solution.  When clients come to our building, we welcome them, and with your help, we offer them healthy, delicious foods that will nourish their bodies and souls.

On May 5, 2015, your donations will make an even bigger difference.  Please donate to The White Center Food Bank via The Seattle Foundation’s website on May 5, and help out your neighbors.

Many, many thanks to The Seattle Foundation and The Belshaw Family Foundation for their generosity.

Mark your calendars today, and stay tuned for additional updates and direct links to our giving page on May 5!
