Food Donation

About The OSFB

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.”
Where do our donations come from and how are those funds spent?

During our most recent year, over 80% of our financial donations came from individuals and families with the balance derived from businesses and community organizations. Out of those donations, we were able to purchase
23 tons of food, as well as pay the rent, utilities, insurance, and other administrative expenses.

Number Served:

The following are some statistics to help you understand the scope of
our mission:

  • Households Served: 5,000+ Households

  • (Averaging 170 per distribution)

  • Individuals Served: 13,500+ individuals
    (2% infants, 18% children, 45% adults, and some 35% seniors)

  • Emergency Food: Averages 50+ households per month

Pets and Books:

We also provide pet food and children’s books.

Knowing how important pets are to our guests, through designated funds we offer dog and cat food to our furry friends.


We strongly believe that literacy is an important key to alleviating poverty and hunger.  Thanks to designated cash donations and many used book donations, over 2,000 books were provided to children this last year.

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.
