Founded  in 1981, the Arlington Community Food Bank was established in response  to the growing concern of hunger in the communities of Arlington and  Lakewood within Snohomish County, Washington. They are a 501c3  non-profit corporation and their mission is to provide emergency food at  no cost to children, families, and individuals within this area.   They never turn anyone away without food! 

Their operations  are 100% volunteer, made up of dedicated community members who donate  their time and talents as both staff and board members. They are able to  keep our doors open because of the generosity of local businesses,  organizations and individual donors.

What is food insecurity?

 The  U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) defines food insecurity as a lack  of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. In  2017, an estimated 1 in 8 Americans were food insecure, equating to 40  million Americans including more than 12 million children. Washington  state ranks 10th in the country in overall wealth – and ranks 34th in  food insecurity. 1 in 6 Washington kids live in a household that faces  challenges in putting enough food on the table.
