A Community Helping Children
Did you know that last year the West Seattle Food served over 3,400 children?
The West Seattle Food Bank has many partners that help the youngest in our community get off to a good start. Financial and in-kind gifts help secure baby food and formula, diapers and sometimes even special treats for birthdays. We can offer toddler bags once each month, thanks to support from Food Security for Children at Solid Ground.
Did you know that the West Seattle Food Bank distributed over $270,000 worth of baby supplies last year?
Through our partnership with WestSide Baby, we connect our clients with diapers, furniture, clothes, toys and more. This has been a very popular addition to our services in the past several years. Many of our supporters are children themselves. Last year several children held food drives rather than receiving gifts at the birthday parties, and schools and community groups organized food drives or participated in the Penny Harvest program and donated proceeds to the West Seattle Food Bank. The children of this community that rely on our services are grateful that there are so many willing to lend a helping hand.
