CURBSIDE FOOD BANK

Supporting neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis response.

The food bank continues to be the door that opens to food assistance, social services, referrals, and resources. When life's biggest challenges make an impact, Helpline House can help people to weather crisis, and rebuild lives. 

All Bainbridge Islanders are eligible to use the food bank. No income information is needed. Anyone who needs food staples will receive essential groceries. A neighbor's needs can be met weekly with the best foods available.

Thank you, in advance, for practicing social distancing when visiting Helpline House. Staff continues to be vigilant about food safety guidelines, disinfecting counters, doorknobs, and more as well as maintaining 6 feet apart while conducting modified operations.
