About the Food Bank

Through the years we’ve gotten to know our community, hear and empathize with their stories and hopefully add some bit of relief in one aspect of their lives. But we can’t do it without you, our community donors, who contribute food, toiletries, household and even fur baby’s food.

We depend on the community’s generosity, especially that of the Corder Foundation. We have been a recipient of matching funds from the foundation, raising close to $35,000 for Chinook in the past 3 years.

We are constantly awed and thankful of the generous donations that come to us throughout the year.

We report our Food Bank statistics monthly to the State of Washington Agriculture Department Food Assistance Program where we are enrolled in the Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), and NW Coastal Harvest, our area food distributor.
