Lynnwood Food Bank is currently on campus at Edmonds College serving EC students and staff on Thursdays 1-3pm.


Following our commitment to continue to serve the community while taking the necessary precautions to protect our customers and volunteers, we will be altering the method we use for distributing food.

  1. Please do not arrive at the Food Bank before 10:30am on Wednesdays or 9:30am on Fridays.  We would also appreciate if your trunk was clear for groceries prior to your arrival. Volunteers will put your groceries in your trunk but they will not put them inside your back seats.
  2. When you arrive at the Food Bank, please park where the volunteers direct you. We will be using 'ferry lane' style parking.
  3. Please remain in your vehicle, a volunteer will approach your car with a number on a post-it note and stick it to your car.
  4. A volunteer will approach your vehicle when it is your turn, please place your ID up to the window and the volunteer will communicate your information and requests to a volunteer inside the Food Bank.
  5. A volunteer will then bring your groceries and place them directly in the trunk of your vehicle.
  6. Access to the building will be limited to volunteers and donations.
  7. There will be no access to our restrooms at this time.
  8. If you are walking to the Food Bank, please do not come within 6 feet of other customers or volunteers while we process your grocery order.
