Items from our Emergency Needs List (below) or Amazon wish list can be shipped directly to our building at: 179 1st Avenue SE, Issaquah, WA 98027. Please include a gift message with your first and last name so we can acknowledge your gift!
We also need financial contributions and $25 grocery store gift cards. Your financial donations help us purchase fresh produce, meat, and dairy items, and continue to run our vital programs. Grocery store gift cards allow us to provide self-selection options to shoppers when product availability limits our selection. If you'd prefer to write a check to avoid the 3% online processing fee, we welcome checks mailed to 179 1st Avenue SE, Issaquah, WA 98027. Thank you!
The Issaquah Food & Clothing Bank invites donors and supporters to join us in a collaborative and strategic food drive program.
