Request for Proposals — Redesign of Website


Wednesday, August 31, 2022 • 5:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time


The Thurston County Food Bank (Food Bank) is looking for a web design company to renovate its current website with a new look/feel, updated content and easy-to-navigate organizational structure. The website needs to be friendly to inexperienced website users and easily interfaced on mobile devices. The website needs to reflect a key value of the Food Bank, which is to invest nearly all of its financial resources in providing food and services to our community members experiencing food insecurity — with a design that is attractive yet not flashy.
