Tri-Cities Food Banks

https://www.facebook.com/tricitiesfoodbank/

 

Message from the Director: All food bank locations are currently open and following CDC protocols and taking safety measures. They have signs posted that say if someone is ill, a site manager will deliver their food to the parking lot.

 

To volunteer: Visit any location to fill out a volunteer form. If electronic form is made available and posted here, you can email form to tricityfoodbank@gmail.com.

 

To donate: They request pre-packed items for kids, flour/masa, oatmeal, canned fruits & vegetables, or anything! Monetary donations go farther as they can get food at a discount and your money can make a greater impact. Locked boxes at each location. Checks made payable to Tri-Cities Food Bank. No way to donate online.

 

Required Documents: Proof of address, picture ID and names & ages of those living in the residence. Client must bring ID and proof of address on every visit to the food bank. For proof of resident they can bring in a recent piece of mail and envelope with name and address, not more than 90 days old. Clients can receive food every 14 days.

 

Note:There is a process for persons to sign paperwork to allow someone else to visit the food bank on their behalf. Usually this requires the person requesting a proxy to visit the food bank location and sign paperwork - this is often a barrier normally and especially now. Hopefully we can continue to brainstorm with organizations about working around some of these policies, if needed.

Home deliveries will also go out on Tuesdays with a combination of hot and frozen meals to provide one meal for each day. Staff will stay in close contact with clients via phone to ensure clients are feeling well and staying well-fed and hydrated. They appreciate thier caring community and look forward to a return to normal.
