Inclement Weather

Just a friendly reminder – as we are looking down the barrel of an oncoming snow storm – please be safe.

The safety of our clients, volunteers and staff is our #1 concern.

Thanksgiving Closures

Thurston County Food Bank will be closed Thursday and Friday (11/26, 11/27) this week to reflect and rest.

This has been quite a year!

And, through it all, we have so much to be thankful for. To begin with, through all the trials of 2020, we have witnessed firsthand the generosity and kindness of our community coming together to support and care for one another.

What an astounding place this is!!

We hope you and your loved ones are able to enjoy the next several days as you reflect on those around you and all the things you are thankful for.

Wishing you and those close a healthy and safe Thanksgiving.
