Home Delivery

Bellingham Food Bank is excited to offer home delivery to residents of Whatcom County who are unable to come to our walk-in or drive-through services, and do not have someone who can shop on their behalf.

Home Delivery

Volunteers pack boxes with dry goods, fresh produce, dairy, and meat and deliver them to Whatcom county residents once per week. At the moment we cannot offer custom packed boxes, but we plan to in the future!

Delivery Schedule

Fridays between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm. 

How to qualify

Bellingham Food Bank asks that Home Delivery Program Participants determine their own eligibility. Some examples of eligibility include:

Participation in Bellingham Food Bank’s home delivery program is honor-based. Due to our limited capacity, if at some point you no longer need this service, please cancel your box deliveries so that we can serve others by emailing homedelivery@bellinghamfoodbank.org.
