The North Community Food Bank has served the area since the 1980's, always improving to meet the growing needs of those in need. The many volunteers who make the organization what it is are truly the lifeblood that connects which each of those that are served. The number of individuals and families needing the NCCFB's services has never been higher. They have added community gardening, nutritious cooking, healthy tastings and recipe sharing, shopping on a budget educational courses and so many other creative resources and activities that really make a positive difference. The organization provides a much needed resource to individuals throughout North County.

I have always enjoyed volunteering at my local schools, church or community. I moved to the northwest nine years ago to join family that already lived in Hockinson and brought with me my 2nd daughter and 2 grandsons. From the very beginning I was hearing about the food bank in Battle Ground and always with positive comments. It took awhile but when my schedule allowed some free time and encouragement from long time food bank volunteer Peggy Kirkman, I decided to join the group. What a rewarding experience it has been. Since I first walked through the door 2 years ago, every week I am amazed at the commitment to the community by the people that I work with. It starts with the dedication of Liz and Carol and just flows out from there..... and it is so very, very contagious. The whole focus is getting the food out to those in need and what a great job everyone does. The compassion and dignity that is shown to all that come for assistance is always a major priority and what a blessing that is to see. God willing I pray I will be able to volunteer for many years to come. Maureen Byrne

I have been a volunteer at the NCCFB since I moved to Battle Ground a little over two years ago. I have worked with much larger food banks, such as Four Square, but they don't come close to the sincere compassion and sense of community that comes from the staff at North Clark County, WA. By working there and greeting clients as they check in, I have had an opportunity to get to know them by their first name. If they don't show up for several weeks, I worry about them and pray for them. Some older senior clients can't see well or don't know what some of the produce items are, or how to prepare them. We are glad to help them with selections and answer questions and they are most appreciative.

I have watched the organization grow so much the building is overcrowded and ready to split at the seams. However, the staff and volunteers just keep on pushing through to serve our clients. For many people in the community, it is their only source of nutrition.

I think of my volunteer efforts as something I am blessed to do. I love how people in the community, church and schools as well as other civic and philanthropic groups come together to help others in need.

NCCFB is a great organization that believes in changing lives one meal at a time. I have been a volunteer since 1992 and a board member since 1996 and believe in this organization. The people who work and volunteer for this organization are truly an inspiration to all who live and work in this community.
This food Bank has been feeding people in North Clark County for many years and is a very vital part of the health of our Community. We have a very dedicated staff and volunteers that work wonders in handing out food and caring for people.

I would love to give them a huge building to work out of. They are so organized in the little spot they work out of.

An outstanding group of people who care about the community they serve. The volunteers know the people in the community, local government supports the group and almost all the service organizations in the community either support the food bank with volunteers, money or both. Thankfully I have not needed the food bank services, but have been lucky to give time, food and supplies to them. I have worked alongside the food bank staff and am amazed by their efforts and vitality.

The NCCFB is one of the best organizations in the area.

I have been on the board of NCCFB for three years and fully believe in this organization. It is vital to our community and the need has increased tremendously through the last couple years. We have a great staff and amazing volunteers that do so much with so little. The board and volunteers are very committed to the success of the organization.

I have volunteered and served as a board member for the North County Community Food Bank for close to 2 years now. I actually learned about the food bank from my Rotary Club. Our local Rotary clubs sponsor many food drives, donate money and every year we put on a children's Christmas Party for the families that we serve. I have personally seen the needs and the results. I cannot think of a better non-profit to be involved with. There is so much hunger in this world. We are all aware of that. But do you realize that it also exists in your own community? It does and much more than you can imagine. No child should ever go to bed hungry or go to school and try to learn on an empty stomach. The economy today has put a very big strain on our food banks, people tend to cut back on their donations, yet the needs list grows. Please help support the North County Community Food Bank by calling 360-687-5007 We can provide you with information regarding donations, food drives or if you know of someone in need in our area, we will be happy to answer your questions.
Thank you

The Mission of North County Community Food Bank is to provide an emergency safety net to North County Residents in crisis and distress, with the goal of helping individuals and families build more stable, independent, and productive lives, and thus enhancing the general well-being of the community. North County Community Food Bank is able to link residents to these services because of community donations of money, food and time.

NCCFB is the heartbeat of our community. For years I've put my volunteer energy and resources into NCCFB because I see it translating our efforts directly into results. By continually finding ways to not just feed people, but help them get back on their feet, NCCFB connects us all and makes the whole community stronger. Everyone needs help sometimes and everyone learns to give. That's what NCCFB does for us, and we'd all be much poorer without it.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing countless individuals and families over the years improve their lives as a result of receiving help or volunteering for NCCFB - or both!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find ways to ensure more reliable and constant funding. The staff works wonders on a shoestring, but the importance of NCCFB to our community well-being should be much more strongly and consistently supported.
