Welcome to the Foothills Food Bank
“The Foothills Food Bank shall distribute quality, nutritious food to community members in need, and deliver services with respect and dignity” – Mission Statement
The Foothills Food Bank was established in 1986 and continues to supply groceries to anyone living in East Whatcom County. Families can visit the Food Bank once per week for as long as they need assistance. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and are part of a network of Whatcom County food banks that distribute commodity food resources.
The Foothills Food Bank serves an average of over 150 Foothills families every week at our distributions, and provides groceries for home-bound adults in our community through our Home Delivery program. Our Winter and Spring Pantry Program helps prevent hunger over school breaks for low-income elementary school students by providing additional kid-friendly snacks and meals.
