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.

2021 Visit Structure update

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.
