Fill out a form
When you first come in, you will be greeted by our wonderful volunteers! They will ask for some basic information to get you checked in.
Bring a form of ID
We do ask that you produce some form of identification. This helps us serve you better! We keep all of your information private and safe.
Receive your food!
Depending on your family size, we have volunteers help walk you through our service line and provide you with all sorts of food. From fresh eggs, produce, and meat to canned vegetables, fruit, and even dog and cat food, we hope to have a variety of items every week.
Weekly Food Distribution
Join us Tuesdays from 9:30am – 6pm
We have extended hours until 8pm on the third Tuesday of every month
If you are house-bound, do not have the means of transportation to get to us, or are experiencing hardship that makes it difficult to reach us, let us know! We would love to deliver a box of food to your residence.
For children in the valley on free & reduced lunches, we provide a weekly backpack of food to get them through the weekend.
If you are struggling, having hardships, or need a hand, we are here for you! Mt. Si Food Bank works hand in hand with other local non-profits and churches to provide assistance when needed. Need some help? Reach out to us!
We started with humble beginnings...
It all began when two widowed women served people out of their own homes. As the need for food grew, so did our operations. In 2014 we moved to our current location where we serve over 200 households each week.
With the help of many volunteers and generous donations from the community as well as ongoing support from the Snoqualmie Valley Ministerial Association, the Mt. Si Food Bank has been providing a place that serves food and spiritual needs to the people of the valley.
The Mt. Si Food Bank assures that every family and individual in the Snoqualmie Valley has access to God’s loving hand and hand up during difficult times.
The Food Bank staff consists of one part time employee and an ever growing number of volunteers from the community. It takes 600+ volunteer hours to accomplish all we do! Seeing a place for this food bank in our valley, many local churches and their people volunteer on a regular basis to help make an impact on hunger. Other organizations come alongside us to make our reach and impact that much greater.
Everyone is welcome, no one is turned away.
The employes, volunteers, and associated vendors are all accountable to the Snoqualmie Valley Ministerial Association. We strive to provide a safe space for our customers, volunteers, and anyone who needs a helping hand.

Ridding the Valley of Child Hunger
As we continued to invest in the community, a huge need emerged. We discovered that almost 200 children in the Snoqualmie Valley were coming to school hungry on Monday morning because of limited availability of food when they are not in school.
We had to do something about it!
Our backpack program serves 170+ children a week, sending them home on the weekend with enough food to provide meals on Saturday and Sunday. With a wide range of volunteers and opportunity, we are able to make a significant impact in our community. From weekend backpacks during the school year and summer packs when school is not in session, with your help, we can meet a serious need.
Working alongside the local schools across the valley, we are able to make sure no child goes hungry.
