Food Banks

The FamilyWorks Food Banks (located in Wallingford and Greenwood) are dedicated to providing fresh, healthy food to people and families in our community who are experiencing hunger or are in danger of experiencing hunger.

We work hard to ensure that the food bank is stocked with a rotating variety of nutrient-rich foods every week including:

    • Fresh Produce
    • Meat
    • Dairy products
    • Baby and instant foods and supplies
    • Diabetic and low-salt items
    • Vegan, vegetarian, and culturally-specific foods when possible

Do I Qualify for the Food Banks?

Our food banks provide weekly groceries to people in need of food who live in the following zip codes:

  • 98103
  • 98107
  • 98115
  • 98117
  • 98133
  • 98177

If you are outside of our food bank zip codes, we will always be happy to serve you on your first visit and provide you with a referral to your neighborhood food bank.

If you are homeless, you can visit any of Seattle’s food banks, including FamilyWorks.

Our Food Programs

Emergency "No-Cook" Food Bags

In addition to the wide variety of fresh produce and groceries available during food bank hours, we also offer Emergency “No-Cook” Food Bags. Filled with snacks and meals that require no more than a can opener and hot water, “No-Cook” Bags are great for folks without access to traditional cooking facilities. 

“No-Cook” Bags can be picked up once a week (in addition to a food bank visit) during food bank hours or anytime a security guard is present to distribute them. 

Grocery Delivery Program

The Grocery Delivery Program is an important part of our food bank work, as many individuals and families are not physically able to make it to our Wallingford location. In 2017, we made 1,842 deliveries to 120 home-bound individuals.

Please call the Wallingford Food Bank at (206) 694-6723 to see if you are eligible for the grocery delivery program. Participants must reside in the zip code 98103.

Weekend PowerPack Program

More than one third of Seattle Public Schools students qualify for free and reduced price lunches at school, but what about the weekends? 

Each week when school is in session, we prepare kid-friendly “PowerPacks” filled with food for students at BF Day, Daniel Bagley, and Licton Springs Elementary Schools to take home over the weekend.

That way, they can spend less time worrying about what they’re going to eat and more time being kids!

WIC Nutrition Appointments

WIC is a nutrition program that helps women, new mothers, and children under 5 years of age eat well, learn about nutrition, and stay healthy. Families meet by appointment with a WIC nutritionist at FamilyWorks in Wallingford.
