Free drive-through food bank in Tacoma

Put more food on your family’s table

If your family would benefit from free groceries, come by during our drive-through hours for a box of healthy food (and maybe a few treats). We strive to offer large quantities of balanced, healthy food including produce. In response to Covid-19, our food bank has gone completely drive-through.

How it works

Drive up to our building on 4340 Pacific Avenue. If there are several cars, line up on 45th Street to drive through our driveway. Tell us how many people are in your household and we’ll put a box of groceries into your trunk. No more questions asked.

Get more and give back by volunteering at the food bank

Anyone with a desire to support the hungry in their community or pay it forward for receiving groceries is welcome to volunteer.

Flexible shifts are available Fridays and Saturdays to help us prepare for food distribution. Other volunteer positions are available outside of those days including holiday box preparation, remote positions, and group opportunities. Community service hours are also available.

Everyone who volunteers may shop for as much food as they’d like to take home. Regardless of your abilities, we have a position for you!

We also offer household supplies and employment support

Please ask if you need additional items for your family such as pet food and hygiene supplies. 

We offer employment services such as employment training, work experience, hands-on coaching in work readiness, and supplies needed to go to work. ​Contact us to get started!
