North County Food Bank is a wonderful resource. I volunteer there twice a week and enjoy everyone I meet there volunteers and clients.

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.

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!

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

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.

Changing lives one meal at a time!
I have volunteered at the NCCFB for over ten years and fill the food boxes and re-stock the shelves.
Our caring for each other as a community goes way beyond the food we give out! in
Today for example I will deliver a bag of clothes my son outgrew to
a grandmother who is raising her 12 old grandson. The joy I will get to see on his face will make my day!!! These clothes are well used and yet to him they represent a chance to look "cool" and share what my son has enjoyed! This grandmother is letting me sign my name on a card and be included in a gift she is giving to Theresa for the passing of her mother-in-law. The service is open to us all and set for this coming Saturday.
Volunteers and clients alike share our small town of Battle Ground. We know and care about each other. We see each other at the post office, gas station and hardware store. We help each other out in ways that go way beyond the monthly food box. We are all truly friends!!!

I would not have met any of these wonderful people if I were not a volunteer at NCCFB! I love to go in and volunteer. I consider the volunteers and staff and client as some of my best friends! If I ever needed their help I know they would be right there for me. We care a lot about each other in our small town.

Our NCCFB allows all of this to happen. Without this organization I don't know how all of the people who depend on our help would make it through their hard times!!!

Our food bank is extra special. I better close now because the young grandson is waiting for me to deliver his latest bag of "new " clothes!

NCCFB is a marvelous organization that works wonders in the community. Not only does the food bank provide healthy food to those in need but the director, staff & board also work to bring the community together to overcome the great need. Churches, schools, organizations and individuals all work to help our neighbors in need. NCCFB nutures those relationships.

As a volunteer that fills food boxes, I've seen many families in need find some relief from the strain of "not enough": not enough meat, vegetables, bread, eggs, cereal, etc, not enough money for electricity, not enough hygiene items, & not enough laundry detergent. Nearly all of the clients express their gratitude when they receive their food boxes. It is heartwarming to be able to help.

The Great!

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

Seeing the smiles on the faces of the clients as they receive a food box and hearing their thanks. What a blessing on both ends.

find a larger building for the food bank.

as a volunteer I drive the van on mondays and pick up everything from Meat to bread dairy, and produce and many more things. were one of the only food banks in are area that have a Van. we are also the distributors for goverment commodities. The director of are food Bank works very hard to raise funds and gets buisnesses to help buy doing food drives for are food bank we have tripled are clients in a very short time this is sad but it's very good to know their is a place you can count on. I have helped this food bank for I think about 12 yrs in that time I've seen alott of changes and growth.
