Mission: A community group wishing to help families in crisis founded North County Community Food Bank in 1996. Providing emergency food supplies to low income families, individuals and seniors is our main purpose. The organization focuses on providing these individuals with the resources and network connections they need to develop a path to establishing a stable household again. We do this by connecting these individuals to our Basic Life skill classes; nutritious cooking, growing their own produce, household management, financial management and family health. We also refer these individuals to other programs that can assist them with their needs.

Results: Our services help struggling individuals get back on their feet and return to the work force, while providing them with the networking and support systems they need to get through their individual situations.

Target demographics: low income families and individuals

Direct beneficiaries per year: over 10,000 individuals with emergency food, supplies, services, and community gardening.

Geographic areas served: North Clark County Washington

Programs: emergency food supplies, social services connections and referrals, assistance and resources to help those in crisis regain their self sufficient lives.

The leadership and volunteers at North County Community Food Bank do their vital work with excellence, care, compassion, and efficiency. For many, it is a near thankless job of serving some of the most overlooked members of our community. But clearly nobody here is in it for the praise, they do so out of a desire to make a difference in the lives of others -- to which I say wow! We so appreciate an organization like this leading the way to help people!

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.
