Ballard Food Bank's mission is to bring food and hope to our neighbors because there can be enough for everyone. To achieve our mission, we provide access to nutritious foods and services that support self-sufficiency and we advocate for food equity and justice. Our programs includes our grocery-style Food Bank which serves over 1,200 individuals and families a week, our Home Delivery Program supporting over 100 home-bound neighbors, and our Weekend Food For Kids program reaching over 500 students across 20 Seattle Public Schools.
However, food is just the first step in our work addressing the underlying issues our clients face. Our Community Resource Hub combines emergency financial assistance with a curated network of partner agencies available on-site to more holistically improve the lives of our neighbors in one place. By curating partnerships with high-quality agencies already doing great work in our community, and who are experts in other service areas, we can help clients access resources in a location they already visit regularly and in a familiar, trusted, and safe environment.
