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. We are working hard to provide fresh produce, breads, sweets, dairy and quality meats. Our volunteer team takes pride in personally selecting the best ingredients to meet your weekly grocery needs.
To limit expose, clients are asked to remain in their vehicle until their prepared groceries are 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 the community. If you are unable to access drive-up services and need special home delivery, contact us at 360.435.1631 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Face covers available
All businesses are required to ensure their customers or clients are wearing face coverings. The City of Arlington and Arlington Community Food Bank are working together to providing face coverings to clients and community members in need. Anyone meeting income eligibility guidelines may pickup two face clothes per family member during regular distribution hours. The recommendation is to ensure 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) to contain and control COVID-19.
Face clothes are available at Arlington Community Food Bank at 19118 63rd Avenue in Arlington (near the airport and Arlington Fire Station 47).
Clients may pick up face masks during normal distribution days & times: Mondays 5:00-6:00pm, Wednesdays 5:30pm-7:00pm, or Fridays11:30am-1:00pm. Clients who want only face masks (not picking up food) must still line up with other clients, upon reaching the parking attendant, can simply request face masks.

Rethinking food Banking
We work hard to secure an abundance of fresh produce, dairy, breads, sweet bakery items and quality meat products for families in our community. We partner with NOAH animal shelter and are proud to offer dog and cat food for furry friends too. Together, we can end hunger. It's going to require an active partnership between the vast network of charities, food banks, governments, and the private sector. We're grateful to have YOU on our side.
Remind your friends, family and neighbors-it's okay to need help. Whether it's on social media or in person, let the people in your life know you don't judge them for needing help. Everyone needs help sometimes, especially these days. Arlington Food bank is here to help anyone who can benefit. Utilizing food bank services can free up funds for other essentials such as rent, utilities, medicine, fuel, clothing and other personal needs. NO ID REQUIRED. Guests self-declare income is within 400% of Federal Poverty Guidelines (email@example.com. Ex: Family of 4 earning >$104,800 qualifies.)
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.
