Friday Food Bank

The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank (IFCB) serves an average of 400 households each week thanks to the amazing team of volunteers who come in each day to make that possible. Volunteers are needed to help process food deliveries, sort donations, organize and stock foods, portion bulk foods, and assist clients during grocery hours.

The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank (IFCB) uses a self select grocery model so families can select foods they prefer in a space that looks and feels like a regular grocery store. The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank places a special emphasis on providing access to fresh, local produce, and healthier food options. We receive fresh food donations from local grocery partners, community gardens, private gardens, farmers markets, fruit gleaning projects, and other community harvest partners. We focus on providing an excellent shopping experience and the best customer service possible.

  • Do not try to lift more than you know that you can lift.
  • Lift with a  buddy and ask for assistance if something looks like it might be too heavy for you.
  • Please alert a staff member if you have any food allergies that may prevent you from portioning or handling foods.

IFCB runs on "volunteer power". Thank you! Great things are possible because of you.
