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. We have been a trusted resource in our community for over 30 years. The Ballard Food Bank currently serves over 1,200 individuals a week living in Ballard, Magnolia and Queen Anne through our grocery-style food bank alone. We reach home-bound individuals through our Home Delivery Program and provide meals for students on the weekend through our Weekend Food For Kids Program. And food is just the first step – we also offer services such as a personal hygiene bar, mail services to clients (an essential detail when looking for employment or housing), and a Community Resource Hub where clients can get emergency financial assistance and referrals to on-site partner agencies so they can get help with their basic needs in one place.
