We are very happy to announce that Clients can now come weekly for Supplemental Visits *in addition to* a Full Visit!
That means our community can now come once a week for a Full Visit (regular visit), and a second time weekly for a Supplemental Visit.
The Supplemental Visits contain specific foods that are donated: breads, pastries, and produce. So, if you find you would like to come and receive an extra portion of produce, pastries or bread during the week – this is for YOU!
Currently, Supplemental Visits are offered during Distribution hours at the Downtown Olympia Client Service Center and the Lacey Client Service Center. We will be adding these visits soon to our Pop-Up Distribution Program as well !

TCFB heads into 2021 with new Volunteer Management Software! We are excited to partner with VolunteerLocal to bring new efficiency, accuracy, and streamlined reporting to the management of our many wonderful volunteers.
But we need your help! All new, returning, and current volunteers need to complete a new TCFB volunteer application one time. For more information, please visit our Volunteer Page.
I’m certain we speak for everybody when we heave a giant sigh as we change the calendars to 2021! In the New Year, we are updating Thurston County Food Bank’s visit structure.
As you may be aware, when COVID first struck, we changed not only our distribution model, but visit structure. We changed the visits from set counts and defined visits – to “unlimited” visits in the pre-bagged/boxed model. This was done in response to COVID – and all that the pandemic brought.
Beginning January 4, 2021, the visit structure will change to a maximum visit of 1 VISIT PER WEEK – PER HOUSEHOLD.
We will continue to operate distributing pre-bagged/boxed foods using our drive-up distribution models(as well as walk-up at our Client Service Center for those without vehicles, on foot or taking busses). It should be also noted, Thurston County Food Bank continues to need volunteers at all locations as we enter 2021. Through everything our Community has been through this past year, we are grateful for the phenomenal people we have around us – supporting each other through these difficult times.
