Home delivery for seniors 60+ AND those with a legal disability

The Thurston County Food Bank offers a limited home delivery program in an effort to protect the most vulnerable within our community from the spread of COVID-19.

We will do our best to deliver food to your home one time a month if:

  • You are over the age of 60, OR
  • You have a legal disability
  • AND you physically live at a Lacey/Olympia/Tumwater address

The delivery counts as a regular full visit to the Food Bank.

Go to the Home Delivery Request Form to sign up.

Questions? Please contact our CSFP Manager. (360) 352-8597 x206.

Thanksgiving Meals

We have so much to be thankful for!
We’ve been receiving many questions regarding Thanksgiving food distribution as well as volunteering.

Here are more details for you:

DISTRIBUTION:

We will be distributing pre-built holiday food boxes and a meat option* — IN ADDITION to our regular distribution of pre-build boxes/bags — on Monday (11/23) and Wednesday (11/25) at our Downtown, CSC, location (220 Thurston Ave. NE, 98516).

This will be drive-up as well as walk-up distribution.

We will be distributing food from 11am – 3pm (last in line) on those two days from the Downtown location.

We, in partnership with St. Martin’s University, will be distributing the same pre-built boxes/bags and meat options* on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (11/24). |

Distribution will take place in front of the Grand Staircase at St. Martin’s in Lacey (5000 Abbey Way SE, Lacey 98503).

This will be drive-up distribution.

Food will be distributed from 10am – 1pm (last in line) on that Tuesday at St. Martin’s.

* Limit ONE (1) Holiday Box and Turkey (or Chicken) per Household (depending on size) while supplies last

VOLUNTEERING:

In light of COVID, we will not be hosting the giant community Box-Build – we have historically enjoyed the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
We have limited spaces for small groups to help as distribution volunteers the week of Thanksgiving. There are also limited opportunities at our warehouse for individuals and groups to help.
