Who We Are
Concern For Neighbors Food Bank is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that collects and distributes food to low income families.
The Food Bank currently serves an average of 110 households per week.
The churches of South Snohomish County began the Concern for Neighbors Food Bank in 1971. It started in the basement of the home adjacent to the current location where five volunteers served 18 clients.
Today - we have our own warehouse, two trucks, and two shipping containers for storage and approximately 60 volunteers. We are a member of the Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition that consists of 20 local food banks that pool their food purchasing dollars to help those in need.
Our food supplies come from a variety of locations including Northwest Harvest, Volunteers of America, Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition, Food Lifeline, local grocery store donations, scouts, schools, churches, company food drives and the local community. We use the generous cash donations from the community to purchase additional food and dairy products.
