Stanwood-Camano Food Bank Services

Children & families in Stanwood & Camano need help.  Schools are closed, people are out of work, and many will struggle to put food on the table.  Getting the food to the children, teens, and families is going to take a coordinated effort.  We are so thankful to the dedication, creativity and determination of people just like you to take charge and offer their services and financial support.

The food bank needs extra funding to purchase more food to fill the backpacks for our kiddos.  Instead of a weekend meal bag, we need to fill bags with enough food to get the children through an entire week for the duration of this health emergency. Delivery service is being explored to insure access for all families in crisis.

Our teens and tweens are at risk.  They will not seek out help through regular channels.  In coordination with trusted advocates, we’ll purchase gift cards to Haggen & QFC for personal hygiene items & food to distribute to the most vulnerable.

In addition, the need for food to fill our shelves is huge!  Our grocery partner’s donations shrunk by 50% because of unprecedented demand and compromised supply chains.  We need to purchase food to fill the shelves so families won’t go hungry.  With the closure of our Thrift Store, our main income stream for our food bank, we need your help to fill the need.  Prices have increased.  Demand is higher. The need is greater.

You can be the HERO by donating to purchase food and supplies.  Thank you from all the families who rely on you.
