The food bank fulfills nearly 5,000 requests for food each month. As compared to 2014, RVFB saw an 11% increase in service levels through 2015. This followed an unprecedented 32% increase in 2014, and an overall 69% increase over the past five years.

We have built a successful weekly home delivery service for over 200 people unable to leave their homes, created partnerships throughout Seattle, Washington state and nationally, and cultivated a volunteer base of over 3,000 people donating around 1,500 hours every month.

The food bank has a strong and committed Board of Directors who meet regularly, as well as dedicated volunteer committees who create community events and fundraising initiatives to keep the Food Bank thriving.

Hunger can happen to anyone — a relative, a friend, a neighbor, you.

More than 300,000 people in King County — 1 in 6 people — are food insecure, meaning they’re not sure where their next meal is coming from.

47% of the people that our partner Food Lifeline serves in Western Washington had to choose between food and paying for heat or utilities.

More than 45% of the individuals using a food bank, meal program or shelter in our region have some form of post-secondary education. Only 9% are homeless.
