Happening now: Next chance to stock the West Seattle Food Bank

November 17, 2012 at 5:41 pm | In How to help, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

We visited the West Seattle Food Bank just before their special donation-dropoff time wrapped up this afternoon, and operations director Steve Curry said thanks for everyone’s generosity – it had been “raining turkeys” during the three-hour window (but, he added, gesturing to what you see in the cooler in the photo, “it’ll all be gone by Wednesday”). Tonight, they would be happy to take your non-perishable food donations during the Beer Church‘s annual Turkey Bowl benefit at West Seattle Bowl; it’s just begun, and there’ll be someone there to accept your donation till 8 or so. If you can’t make it tonight, the food bank’s hours at its 35th/Morgan HQ are part of this “how to help” update we published a few days ago.

P.S. The White Center Food Bank serves part of West Seattle and its team will be at Fauntleroy Church tomorrow at 11 am with a refrigerated van to accept turkey donations – their overall holiday-help list is here.


  1. Thank you to so many people for making it a special Turkey Day for so many families in need! Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. I drove to the White center Food bank and was waiting for them to open at 2 PM when I resurfed the web and found out it was the West Seattle food bank that would be open 2 to 5 (in previous years it was White Center that was open on Saturday before Tday)… So west Seattle garnered the birds chilling (or defrosting) in the car when I figured out where I got in the weeds…
