Why Nutritious Food Matters
Lynnwood Food Bank has been concerned with food insecurity since our inception in 1978. However, since 2015 we have become increasingly more concerned with health disparities along socio-economic and racial lines. As a result, additional healthy options, education and programming have been implemented to better serve our community.
In addition to breaking down barriers to food access, we are committed to offering our participants choices that enable positive health outcomes, help prevent diet related chronic illnesses, and respect the cultural needs and dietary preferences of the communities we serve.
The Food Bank uses the Healthy Eating Research (HER) guidelines of ranking foods in the 1) Donate/ Choose Often (Green), 2) Donate/ Choose Sometimes (Yellow) 3) Donate/ Choose Rarely (Red) categories.
While we accept all donations, some options support this commitment to our participants more than others. Please use the following pages to guide your donation choices.
Thank you for supporting our participants' needs with a variety of foods to fit every customer.
