Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Emergency Assistance, Food, Food, Agriculture & Nutrition, Food Banks & Pantries, Human Services

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!

A mission of North County Community Food Bank is to break the cycle of poverty through education and in particular education of children. They address this in a number of venues including nutrition and cooking classes and summer life skills camps for low income young people. Youth make up 41% of NCCFB's clients. The effort to break the cycle of poverty must include a strong emphasis and focus on educating and exposing youth to the prospects and opportunities beyond poverty. They are doing this.

"North County Community Food Bank is home grown and unpretentious. People of good will started it bank decades ago, and the same kind of people are still driving it today. They truly care about the less fortunate.

"And no other organization can stretch a dollar the way they can!"

This is a very well respected nonprofit serving low income individuals throughout North Clark County Washington. Operated by volunteers and two staff who are very caring, respectful and efficient while serving thousands of individuals every year, Monday through Friday. They are extremely creative in how they offer healthy pantry tastings each month, nutritious cooking courses, educational activities for low income youth, partnering with others in the community to provide school supplies and backpacks to children in need, and the many other things they provide in the community throughout the year. Great group to get involved with as a volunteer, donor or supporter.

North County Community Food Bank (NCCFB) has been feeding hungry families for several decades and is considered the primary charity of the north Clark County Washington community. Their board is more dedicated than any other board I know, and they work hard to raise the money to feed the hungry.

My husband has been so impressed with their generosity and committment that they are his chief charity and he gives generously.

NCCFB is not a glamorous organization, but they are extremely effective and reflective of the generous spirit of the Battle Ground community where they are housed. I'm proud to be able to help their very honorable programs.
