Holiday giving time: How you can help the White Center Food Bank

Nine days till Thanksgiving, and even fewer days till local food banks’ holiday food pickups – so now’s the time to figure out how to help. The White Center Food Bank, which also serves southern West Seattle, is looking for volunteer helpers as well as food and money – plus, note that there is a turkey-dropoff opportunity in West Seattle this weekend, if you can’t get to White Center:

Do you have time next week to pass out food to clients at the White Center Food Bank at .10829 8th Ave SW. We need volunteers on the following shifts:

Monday, November 19 (9:30 to 12:30)
Tuesday, November 20 (9:30-12:30, 12:30-3:30 & 3:30-6:30)
Wednesday, November 21 (12:30-3:30 & 4:00 to 8:00)
If you can help, contact Audrey Zemke at or 206-762-2848. Families and kids welcome.

The Food Bank also needs donations of the following foods or money to buy them.

Canned Pumpkin
Canned Sweet Potatoes or Yams
Cake Mixes

Donations are accepted Mondays through Fridays from 8:30 to 5:00 at 10829 8th Ave SW [map].

WEST SEATTLE DROPOFF: Turkeys can be dropped off on Sunday, November 18, at Fauntleroy UCC [9140 California SW], starting at 11 am. We will be onsite with our refrigerated van to accept donations.

We are checking with the West Seattle Food Bank regarding their holiday needs, and will publish that when we get the info.

    WS Food Bank just posted this on FB:
    West Seattle Food Bank
    SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: We will be open this Saturday (11/17) to accept special holiday food donations from 2-5pm. We would be especially thankful for frozen turkeys and desserts, like pie! We’ll also be giving quick tours of the food bank, so bring the kids and show them what giving back is all about!

      Thanks, Diane, I got a reply from Fran a short time ago and have since published it. We’ll get this all into our calendar for reminders etc. and on the forthcoming holiday page. – TR

    I tried to drop off some things today but you had already left the Fauntleroy UCC. I just wanted to post this so others don’t think they can still drop off.
    I’ll see you tomorrow at White Center!

Sorry, comment time is over.
