Arlington Community Food Bank's Response to COVID-19
Arlington Community Food Bank will continue to provide service, however our facility, itself, will be closed to the public. The food bank will continue to provide groceries in packed boxes in order to limit exposure for clients, staff and volunteers.
The parking lot will open 1/2 hour prior to service with an attendant directing parking. In adopting the FEMA procedures of emergency response of distribution, we will distribute one service per vehicle. Additional household units are required to provide current proof residency (utility bill). We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause for many families. We encourage you to practice safe distancing and for your family unit to travel to the food bank independently.
Clients are asked to remain in their vehicle. Prepared groceries will be delivered next to your vehicle at which time you can safely load, you are asked to leave your cart curbside. Thank you for helping us keep our facility safe so we can continue to provide services for our community. If you have been compromised by COVID-19, please call 360.435.1631 or email to request special arrangements for your groceries.
The City of Arlington recommends that all citizens comply with the Snohomish Health District’s and the CDC’s recommendations to cover their faces while in public (during grocery shopping and other essential errands) during our Stay Home, Stay Healthy efforts to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus.
If you are unable to make your own face covers, you may pick up two per person (subject to availability) at the Arlington Community Food Bank at 19118 63rd Avenue in Arlington (near the airport and Arlington Fire Station 47). Please call for availability before you drive over.
Clients may pick up face masks during normal distribution days & times: Monday and Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and Wednesday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Clients who want only face masks (not picking up food) must still line up with other clients, but upon reaching the parking attendant, can simply request face masks.

The Arlington Community Food Bank's mission is to help end hunger in our community at its root cause.
1 in 8 people face hunger in Western Washington. 1 in 5 of them are kids. Most food bank guests have jobs and nearly all visitors have homes. Financial and medical difficulties force many people to choose between food, utilities, and medicine. In other words...people just like you and I struggle.
Hunger impacts all of us. Hungry children can't learn, hungry adults are less productive and miss work more frequently, and hungry seniors often must choose between medicine and food.
With the generosity of businesses, organizations and individuals, we are able to offer relief and help end hunger in our neighborhoods.
