We're @UDistFoodBank, check out what we have to say.
For 30 years, the University District Food Bank has helped prevent hunger in Northeast Seattle neighborhoods. Each week, more than 1,100 different families receive the groceries they need to prepare nutritionally balanced meals at home.
Last year, we had almost 55,000 customer visits and distributed 2.3 million pounds of food. Approximately 2% of our clients are infants, 20% are children, 63% are adults, and 15% are senior citizens.
To provide individuals and families who are in need with food and access to a network of community resources that helps them achieve self-sufficiency.
Who We Serve
Every week over 1,100 families receive groceries, toiletries and baby food and supplies from the University District Food Bank. We assist individuals and families living in the 98102, 98103, 98105, 98112, 98115, and 98125 zip codes.
Almost 60% of our customers have at least one part-time job but have a hard time making ends meet every month. These families use the food bank to extend their incomes so that they can afford other necessities like rent, electricity, prescription drugs, school supplies or car repairs.
We also serve many individuals while they are between jobs (over 30% of our customers have someone in their household looking for additional work), those living on fixed incomes, seniors, students, people with disabilities, the mentally ill, and the homeless.
The Food Bank is located in the basement of the University Christian Church at 1413 NE 50th Street (on NE 50th just down the hill from the corner of 15th Avenue NE). For more specific directions, maps, and bus routes, visit our finding us page.
We are supported by individuals, churches, government, and many local businesses. Over 80% of the food we distribute is donated. Your monetary support is needed; consider making a donation.
