What We Do:

Rainier Valley Food Banks' (RVFB) mission to nourish with good food, empower with knowledge, and serve with compassion. RVFB provides food assistance to low-income residents in southeast Seattle, with a focus on seniors, families, individuals with disabilities and the homeless. No one is turned away who meets the food bank's broad criteria for assistance. We have a commitment to honor our guests by offering an abundance of healthy, nutritious food.

Our food bank is wheelchair accessible, and assists families with babies by offering baby food, formula and diapers as available. RVFB is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and is located on two major bus lines serving the southeast Seattle area: the 7 & the 9.


Demand continues to rise:

  • We just moved into our new home in Rainier Beach, increasing our previous square footage from 1200 square feet to 8,000 square feet, allowing us to better meet the growing needs of the community and to serve our community with dignity.
  • Thanks to the donations of time, food and money from community members - we provide groceries for over 22,000 people every month.
  • We are the only food bank in the heart of Rainier Valley between the Central District and Skyway.
  • In 2020, RVFB provided 41,137 grocery bags to 11,765 households.


RVFB is a grassroots, community effort:

  • Our food bank could not operate without a cadre of committed, long-term community volunteers who contribute over 1,500 hours of service every month.
  • An invigorated board leads RVFB with a focus on fundraising, community awareness and management of the organization to better serve our clients and meet the increasing demand.
  • Private donations from community members account for over half of our funding. Over a year into the COVID pandemic, RVFB has not stopped growing to meet the needs of the community, and RVFB needs the support of the community more than ever. Please consider taking a moment to help your neighbors and our food bank today.
