Who We Are

Our Mission

FamilyWorks connects neighbors and families to nourishing food, essential resources, and a supportive community, so people can build resiliency to meet life’s challenges.

FamilyWorks advocates with dignity, inclusion, and empowerment.

What We Do

FamilyWorks is the only organization in Seattle with a food bank and family resource center in the same building. Because of this unique blend of services, neighbors and families have access to nutritious groceries at both our Greenwood and Wallingford Food Banks, as well as a wide array of programs and resources at our Wallingford Family Resource Center.

Through our food banks, families and individuals can receive fresh produce, dairy, proteins, and more, once a week at each location. We also offer a Grocery Delivery Program for home-bound adults, “No-Cook” or Emergency Food Bags for our neighbors struggling with housing insecurity, and “PowerPacks” for local students to stay well-nourished over the weekend.

At our Family Resource Center, families and individuals are creating a vibrant community through playgroups, participant-led workshops, and other community programs. Our Family Resource Center also offers other basic resources such as children’s clothing and diapers, broader support in referrals and connections to other services, WIC Nutritionist appointments, and more.
