The Stanwood Camano Food Bank provides assistance to more than a thousand community members. By our generous donors, both financially and products, we provide a wide variety of food, as well as pet food and basic toiletries. This generosity translates into essential assistance to children, seniors, working poor, single adults, homeless, and families of all backgrounds.
The Stanwood Camano Food Bank mission is made possible by the generosity of our wonderful community. First, are the hundreds of volunteers who, each month, provide about two thousand hours of service. These volunteers are then led by the volunteer board under their strategic direction. Second, the food bank rescues hundreds of pounds of produce, dairy, and bread from grocery store partners. Third, many generous individuals support Stanwood Camano Food Bank by donations to both the food bank and thrift store.
By this tremendous community support, the Stanwood Camano Food Bank serves over a thousand clients per month, distributing over 50,000 pounds of food.
Stanwood / Camano Food Bank Services provides resources and connections to alleviate hunger and meet the basic needs of individuals and families in our community.
Stanwood / Camano Food Bank Services envisions a community where hunger is defeated and basic needs are satisfied.

As a result of these key connections, we’ve increased our grocery rescue pounds received by over 110,000# compared to the same time period from the previous year. This represents a 26% increase in the amount of food we can distribute to our families. Currently, 1276 unduplicated households are benefiting from the increase of food pickups.
Sometimes, value is measured in the way a person’s demeanor improves when they are treated with respect & dignity through their experience.
