Food Bank Will Be Open

The Friday Harbor Food Bank will continue to be open every Wednesday and Saturday 1130AM to 2PM to all residents of San Juan Island.

We have instituted some new procedures designed to minimize contact between volunteer staff and citizens wishing to access our food supplies.  Citizens are asked to maintain 6 feet of space between the person in line in front of you by noting the cones as the place for you to stand.   A volunteer will take your name, then direct you to a cone by the exit door to pick up your prefilled grocery bag.  Family size will be noted and accommodated. At this time citizens are still only allowed to access the Food Bank services one day a week.

Donations to the Food Bank, whether financial or food items, can be made on Wednesdays or Saturdays between 1030AM and 2PM.  We will accept food donations and ask that all food items be date-checked to ensure freshness and product safety.  We really prefer financial donations as we expect in the next two months the need will grow for food assistance with our island families.

A very special ‘Thank you’ to all our volunteers and all our supporters. We can’t do this without you.  You are the best!
