Our Mission

The North Mason Food Bank, with dignity and respect, builds community, shares abundance, and nourishes lives.

Community Driven

Since 1982 the North Mason Food Bank has been ensuring families are well nourished. By providing families with the essentials for daily life, we help fight hunger in our community. With volunteers and donations from our neighbors, this is made possible. We are run by volunteers, including our Board of Directors, and we are here to serve and give back. Located at the North end of Mason County, we provide services to Allyn, Belfair, Grapeview, Tahuya, and Twanoh. Services are provided at no charge to families.

As a 4th grade teacher I volunteer
because I never want kids to go to school hungry.

After visiting, I was hooked
and knew this was where
I could help my community.
I volunteer 3 days a week,
and am very fullfilled.

I volunteer because I
enjoy the people, and love giving
back to my community!

I show my love for people
