Holiday giving: Here’s how you can help the West Seattle Food Bank

Earlier today, we shared the holiday-help request sent by the White Center Food Bank, and sent the West Seattle Food Bank an inquiry to see what it needs before Thanksgiving. Together, both serve thousands of families in this area. We’ve now heard back from West Seattle FB executive director Fran Yeatts:

The West Seattle Food Bank will be open to accept donations this Saturday, November 17th from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Perishable and non-perishable items will be gratefully accepted during this time. We will also offer tours of the facility and additional information on Food Bank operations for those interested.

Frozen turkeys and desserts like store-bought pies or pie shells and fixings are especially needed.

Non-perishable donations can also be accepted at the Turkey Bowl this Saturday from 5:30 PM– 8:00 PM at the West Seattle Bowl, 4505 39th Ave. SW. West Seattle Food Bank will also be open during our regular donation hours this week. During the week of November 19th, we will be open to accept donation Monday the 19th from 9:00 AM – 7 PM, Tuesday, November 20th from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, and Wednesday, November 21st from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Our address: 3419 SW Morgan. When delivering donations, pull into our parking garage off Morgan St. just east of 35th Ave. SW. Contact us at 206-932-9023 for additional information.

For West Seattle residents needing assistance with food over the holidays, the West Seattle Food Bank will be distributing Thanksgiving food during the following hours:
Monday, November 19th 9:15 AM – 11:00 AM for seniors only.
Monday, November 19th 4:00 PM – 7 PM for the general public.
Tuesday, November 20th 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM for the general public.

We will be closed on November 22nd and 23rd for the Thanksgiving holidays. Thank you.

    Does anyone know if they still collect grocery store receipts that they can then submit for a donation from that grocer? If so, what stores participate?

    I believe it’s Thriftway. You may want to call and confirm.

    Yes, it is definitely Thriftway. Thank you for asking. Also perhaps the met market. Call the wsfb at 206-932-9023 for confirmation.

    West Seattle’s Metropolitan Market is also accepting donations for the West Seattle Food Bank. My husband and I donated on Sunday.

Sorry, comment time is over.
