Because of high demand and a lack of funding in South King County, there is a shortage of emergency food services for the remainder of summer. This means our food bank (which is a outlet of King County Emergency Food Services), won't be receiving food to distribute until at least September. We hope to keep our food bank location open one day per week (Fridays) and to continue to serve our guests as best we can. 

If you would like to help us put together our own bags of food here are the items needed:

  • canned beans
  • canned vegetables
  • tuna fish/canned meal chicken
  • rice
  • pasta
  • spaghetti sauce
  • canned fruit
  • mac & cheese, boxed
  • dried beans - lentils, split peas
  • top ramen

If you would like to help assemble bags, or want to know how else to help, please contact our main office (admin@stcolumbakent.org) to be put in touch with our Food Bank Volunteer Coordinator, Jane Hershman. 

If you are willing to advocate with our local city councils to restore and increase funding for emergency food services, consider writing to your city council in Kent, Federal Way, Auburn or Des Moines, and expressing your desire for funding for this vital service.
