The Tukwila Pantry Food Bank

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: August 10, 2012, 5:44 PM

Description

The Tukwila Pantry is an 'emergency' food bank. Clients come to the Tukwila Pantry when they can't make ends meet. Sometimes they have applied for food stamps but haven't received them yet, or sometimes an unexpected expense such as a medical bill or higher than normal utilities have interrupted their budget. Sadly, with today's economy and job loss our neighbors rely on the food bank more than ever. The Tukwila Pantry serves other communities as well. Approximately 2,000 households from Seatac, Burien and the surrounding areas were served in 2011.

South King county has a large percentage of families with children living in poverty. At Cascade View Elementary School, just two blocks from the Tukwila Pantry, over 80% of the students qualify for free and reduced lunch programs.

The City of Tukwila, Washington is just south of Seattle in King County. The city is home to an extensive retail and business area including Westfield Shoppingtown Southcenter Mall. Boeing Field is located at the Northend of Tukwila.
