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!

I have been involved with the NCCFB since the mid 80's when I was asked to haul commodities from Vancouver to Battle Ground. I've seen the volunteers working year after year donating time and effort to those that need some assistance. Volunteers are the backbone of many organizations and the NCCFB continues to cultivate and recognize the volunteers for the major part they play in helping the community

The North County Community Food Bank is a tremendous asset to the Battle Ground / North Clark County area. As the need continues to grow, the staff, volunteers, and Executive Director work relentlessly to provide food for those in need, and the help doesn't stop there. Their commitment to the individual is evident in how they strive to assist people in the everyday challenges of life. The efforts of the food bank go above and beyond to help people in a wide variety of areas: nutrition, education, health, finances, giving back, volunteering, to name a few - makes them so much more than a food bank. It really defines their effort to end hunger and to break the cycle of poverty that is so easy for some to get caught in. Great organization!

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 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
