The Food Pantry is a ministry of Northwest Church to our church family and people in surrounding cities, including Federal Way, Auburn, and NE Tacoma. Our desire is to help individuals and families make wise, healthy choices and provide assistance during difficult times.
The Food Pantry is open on Wednesdays and located in the church’s gym, which is accessible from the north side of our building on SW 348th Street. Check-in begins at 9:30 and ends promptly at 10:00 a.m. Then, after a short prayer, the Pantry opens and patrons receive bread, plus a full bag of groceries, including fruit and vegetables, fresh eggs, and more! The process moves quickly, and you should be through the line in minutes.
First-time visitors need to bring a picture ID and proof of residence from one of the following zip codes: 98001, 98003, 98023, and 98422. Once registered, you’ll be given a number (one per household) and a calendar showing the dates you can pick up your groceries every other Wednesday. Language assistance is available in Spanish.
