Bounty Food Bank Volunteers

  Bethany United Methodist Church has been donating food and clothing to the local community since 1977. But seeing the need, we felt more was necessary.

  Our Bounty Food Bank was established in 1983 to help supplement our local community food supply for those in need. We supply this additional food for those who live in the 98404, 98408, 98409, and 98418 zip codes.
There is a photo ID and matching mail address verification process in effect to qualify to receive food assistance.

  We are open one day per week on Monday mornings 09:30 – 11:30 AM.
You may visit the Bounty Food Bank once per 28 days ONLY (monthly) and must show your qualifying photo ID and matching addressed mail (like a utility bill, etc.) not older than 30 days, to receive food.

  If you are in need and cannot come to the Food Bank during open hours, you may call the church and leave a message (253-475-7098) with your contact information during the week. We will contact you as soon as possible.
