Nucor delivers big holiday gift to West Seattle Food Bank

This is one of the West Seattle Food Bank‘s most-heartwarming and belly-filling days of the year – the day they welcome a big gift from Nucor Steel and its employees.

This year, employees collected 5,200 pounds of food – more than 2 1/2 tons! We stopped by as they were unloading. They also donated cash and checks that with additional/matching donations from the company brought WSFB a check totaling $21,708.

Your help is appreciated too – for example, if you’d like to donate a turkey or two for Christmas, the food bank tells us next Monday is the optimal dropoff day. They’re on the southeast corner of 35th and Morgan, with donors welcome to use the garage entry off Morgan south of 35th. More info about donating can be found here.

    Great job! I noticed the huge bags of flour. Does the food bank repackage it in smaller bags for distribution?

    WS or bust! my semi-educated guess would be yes.


    When I occasionally visited WSFB, around 5 or so years ago when I lived in their service area, although I don’t recall if I saw flour (likely would have declined it, as I don’t bake or otherwise often use flour), but they *did* have repackaged rice, oatmeal, and beans among some items that originated in larger packaging.

    Yes – most all local food banks are able to repackage bulk ingredients! We do it each week at the Vashon food bank.

    The food is impressive, but that is an admirable cash donation from both employees and Nucor.
