COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Gifts From The Heart remains Open

GFTH Food bank will be open on Wednesdays during the usual hours of 2:00-5:00. However, due to the current "Stay home, stay healthy" order from Governor Inslee, our distribution process will be different.

BY FOLLOWING THESE SIMPLE GUIDELINES, YOU CAN HELP US INSURE THAT CLIENTS AND VOLUNTEERS STAY SAFE DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION.

Food bank volunteers will be waiting outside the building to explain the food options available and then delivering the bags to each client, so please DO NOT come into the building for any reason.

  • Walkers and bus riders: Be sure to stay 6 feet apart from each other as you wait in line. Volunteers will serve you in the order in which you arrive.
  • Clients arriving in cars: DO NOT exit your car or stand in line. Volunteers will serve you at your car in the order in which you arrive.
  • A volunteer will ask for your client number or name and the number of people in your household.
  • The volunteer will explain the protein options available and ask which protein option you would like.
  • The volunteer will ask if you want any of the standard extra items such as rice, beans, or peanut butter.
 The volunteer will then go into the food bank building with your information and order choices and collect your order.
  • Every client will get the appropriate number of bags of nonperishables based on family size, as always.
  • Every client will get pre-made bags of veggies and fruit. Everyone will get the same type of items though some clients may get two bags based on family size.
  • Every client will get bread, a protein choice, and any extras ordered.
  • Volunteers will bring your orders out to you. For clients in cars, volunteers will bring the order to the car and help load if necessary.

Again, thank you for your cooperation and patience. Stay safe; stay healthy!
