Food Bank FAQs
How long does shopping take?
Shopping is fast! It often takes 15 minutes at most to go through all of our options. However, waiting in line can add another 15-20 minutes to your visit, so please plan accordingly.
What do I need to bring?
There is nothing you specifically need to bring to receive our services, but there are a couple items that will improve your experience.
What products are commonly given out?
Our goal is to consistently offer main food groups including protein, dairy, produce and grains. Any given day will include options of each of these major food groups. Hygiene items are available on a less regular basis.
Where does the food come from?
The majority of our food product is ordered from Food Lifeline and Northwest Harvest on a weekly basis. PSLA also participates in the WSDA's The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) which connects surplus produce, meat, dairy, and dry goods with food banks. Finally, PSLA maintains a grocery rescue partnership with a local Amazon distribution warehouse.
