About the Food Bank!

 

Vision Statement:
The Vision of the Ocean Shores Food Bank is that “Everyone has access to sufficient, nutritious food.”

Mission Statement:
Our Mission is: “So no one in our community goes hungry.”

We are an all-volunteer organization and working together, we can help alleviate hunger in our community.

When no one in our community goes hungry, we will have been successful. Until then, your financial donations and volunteer help will make Ocean Shores a better place to live for all its citizens. The Ocean Shores Food Bank is an IRS 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity and has also been designated a charitable corporation in the state of Washington.

For those of you less familiar with the Ocean Shores Food Bank, we are open for distributions twice a month on the first and third Thursdays. In addition, we have special distributions at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Emergency food is available six days a week through the assistance of the Anchor Avenue Thrift Store. Here is a new article about OSFB for you to read (OSFB – who we are).

Governance:

The Ocean Shores Food Bank (OSFB) is governed by an active and engaged Board of Directors <click here for current board members> that is comprised of 11 people, all of whom live in Ocean Shores. The Board oversees the Executive Director and helps raise funds to provide financial stability so the Food Bank can continue serving and caring for all our neighbors in need.

The Board meets on the second Wednesday of each month at the meeting room in the Library.  If you would like to see the Board in action, just stop by!  Meetings start at 10:00 a.m. Many Board members volunteer at the Food Bank on Distribution Days and are always willing to stop and talk about what we do.

If you are interested in being on the OSFB Board please fill out the Board Member Application and submit it to us by clicking on: Board Member Application Form

All Volunteer Organization:

In addition, more than sixty volunteers serve, by donating 7,900+ hours of their time, not only to provide food but hope, compassion, and respect to more than 460+ households each month. These households are made up of over a thousand infants, children, adults, and seniors. When we all work together, neighbors helping neighbors, no one is turned away, and no one goes hungry.
