Snohomish County Food Resources

Jul 13, 2020
There are many people in our community that face challenges putting food on the table.
Food distribution centers and food banks aid individuals and families in preventing hunger by providing free food items to be prepared at home.
Washington Food Needs
  • 1 in 5 children live in a household that struggles to put food on the table.
  • 1 in 5 Washingtonians rely on their local food bank.
  • Washington is the 23rd hungriest state in the nation.
Due to COVID-19, some people in our community may be visiting a food bank for the first time. During uncertain times, challenges preventing hunger can feel intensified. To help with this challenge we’ve gathered some community resources to help the fight against hunger:
If you or someone you know is in need of food, please contact Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition for information about the 21 food banks located within Snohomish County.
There are also many school district-related food distribution sites for students and anyone under the age of 18, at no cost, in Snohomish County. Those locations are listed here: Snohomish County School Districts are Offering Meals at no cost for Children at many locations.
The City of Everett and Snohomish County are leading a regional effort to recruit volunteers to assist at food banks and meal distribution sites throughout Everett and Snohomish County. If you are in the position to give back to your community and volunteer for a local food bank, please visit: https://everettwa.gov/formcenter/emergency-management-21/2020-volunteer-for-local-food-banks-and--326.
