Joyfully Serving Those in Need Since 1979
The Mukilteo Food Bank began as an informal food pantry in 1979 in the Mukilteo Presbyterian Church. In February, 2002, it was incorporated as a separate organization, but it continues to be located in and work closely with the Presbyterian Church. Its purpose is to “feed and assist those in need within the Mukilteo School District by supplying food to anyone in time of need, regardless of race, sex, age, national origin, disability, marital status, religion, creed, or sexual orientation.”
Neighbor Helping Neighbor
The Food Bank is an exceptionally efficient charity which collects and distributes well over $100,000 worth of food each year to more than 250 families. Because it is an all-volunteer operation and receives donations of all kinds, operation expenses are minimal. Despite being very efficient, the fifty to sixty volunteers involved with the Food Bank always work diligently to honor the inherent dignity of every client. While emergency distribution occurs at any time, the Food Bank is formally open the second and fourth Tuesday (9:00 – 10:30 A.M.) each month as well as the Monday afternoon (3:30-5:00 P.M.) just before each open Tuesday.
The Mukilteo Food Bank is classified as tax exempt under section 501 c (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and therefore donors may deduct contributions in any form as provided in section 170 of the Code. Its Federal Employer Identification Number is 91-1999844. Its Unified Business Identifier Number in the State of Washington is 602-132-321.
