Your food donations provide variety to supplement the staple items and produce Emergency Food Network distributes to our partner food programs.
Please give careful consideration to what is in your donation bag. Foods highest in nutritional density tend to be the least processed foods. Fresh fruits and vegetable are mostly very good in nutritional density. Within shelf-stable products, select ones with the lowest saturated fats and refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour).
Items that are most needed include: peanut butter, canned stews, canned meats, infant formula, baby food, diapers, canned fruits, and canned vegetables.
Food donations can be dropped off at our Distribution Center (3318 92nd St S, Lakewood 98499) Monday – Friday 8am-4pm, or you can donate food directly to a food pantry near you. (food pantry map)
