Get the healthy food your family needs.

In Washington, over 1.1 million people rely on food stamps—and the need for food assistance is steadily increasing. For an average household, SNAP benefits only amount to a maximum of $7 per day. More and more people are seeking food banks and other resources in order to survive, and Byrd Barr Place’s Food Bank is here to help. Last year, Byrd Barr Place provided more than 52,000 bags of food to Seattle residents.

About the Program

Byrd Barr Place’s Food Bank provides food and non-grocery items three days a week to Seattle residents in need. Items available in our Food Bank include fresh produce, cultural staples, meat, dairy products, bread, canned and nonperishable goods, and non-grocery items (shampoo, toothpaste, paper towels, etc.). Formula and baby supplies may also be available.
