How/what Food is Distributed to Clients:
We have two separate sections in our food bank. The self service area is stocked mainly with breads and produce. The food in this area is available to all individuals and it is available at all times. The other area of the food bank contains the bulk of our canned goods, cereals and grains, milk, meat and eggs. Shoppers can visit this area once a week. Our food bank is also a distributer of USDA Commodities. These are available to Bainbridge Island residents who live at or below the National Poverty Level.
Qualifications required to receive food and other assistance:
Bainbridge Island residents are welcome to use the food bank. Off island shoppers are welcome to use the self service part of our food bank and are also entitled to a bag of groceries from Northwest Harvest (this is a limited amount) once per week.
