To get help, find out about:
We offer food with dignity to our neighbors in need that live in Sumner (98390 zipcode) and the Lake Tapps portion of the 98391 zipcode area. A family can visit the Food Bank once every 30 days for food, if needed.
Our goal is to provide enough food to feed each member of a family for several days. We also offer other items such as personal hygiene, baby food, pet food, and other sundry household items as supplies allow. What we provide directly reflects the donations we have received.
To receive food you must:
Set up an appointment by phone to pick up food later that same day.
Arrive at the food bank to pick up your food at your appointed time.
Live in one of the following zip codes: 98390 or 98391 (Lake Tapps area of 98391 only)
Show personal ID and a piece of mail with your CURRENT address for each adult at one of the above zip codes.
Show a birth certificate, insurance card, school ID, or custody papers for every child receiving food.
