Welcome to Our New Website

Welcome to the White Center Food Bank’s (White Center Emergency Food Association) new website. Please be patient with us as we gather some more information and get things finalized. We hope to have this a well oiled machine real soon.

BECU People Helping People – We won!

On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, the White Center Food Bank was awarded $5000.00 through the Boeing Employees Credit Union People Helping People Awards.  Seen here is a picture of BECU CEO Benson Porter presenting White Center Food Bank’s Executive Director Rick Jump and Development Director Kristina Dahl with the big check.  We were incredibly honored to receive this award: out of the 1500 nominations in the past two years, only 27 nonprofits have received the award, and we are the only food bank to have received the award out of the many food bank submissions.
