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
- Dairy products
- Baby and instant foods and supplies
- Diabetic and low-salt items
- Vegan, vegetarian, and culturally-specific foods when possible
Anyone is welcome to shop at our food banks regardless of zip code or income. We will never ask for proof of identification or other forms of verification.
Register Online for Simpler Check-In

You can make this process even faster by registering online!

Our Food Programs
Mobile Food Pantry
To increase access to our services outside of our normal distribution hours, we created a FamilyWorks food truck. Our Mobile Food Pantry regularly visits 4 locations in North Seattle, bringing nutritious food and vital resources directly to these communities.
If you have a one-time community event or on-going location where you’d like the Mobile Food Pantry to make a stop, contact Food Bank Manager Tobey Solomon-Auger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
FamilyWorks Food Bank is introducing online ordering! Each week, you can view our weekly items online and order a custom grocery box for your household from any computer or smartphone.
To create your account for online ordering, please register online at https://food.familyworksseattle.org/createaccount. One account is allowed per household. If you have any difficulties with setting up your account, please email us at email@example.com or call us at (206) 647-1780.
The shopping window opens every week on Tuesday at 12:00 PM and closes at 8:00AM on Wednesday or Thursday, depending which day you’d prefer to pick-up. During this time, you can sign in to your account and place your order at https://food.familyworksseattle.org/.
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 2020, we made 5,487 deliveries to home-bound seniors and families.
Please call the Wallingford Food Bank at (206) 647-1780 to see if you are eligible for the grocery delivery program (must reside in North Seattle).
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!
