Our Mission

We believe that eliminating hunger means fighting it's root cause--poverty. To this end, we advocate for public policies that:

 

1) Promote access to nutritious food

2) Help low-income people meet their basic needs

3) Support budgets that preserve a basic safety net

Our Story

Established in 2006, the Mattawa Area Food Bank is a non-profit, volunteer only hunger relief agency. We believe that nutritious food should reach rural communities like ours; and that food should be given freely to anyone hungry enough to ask. The MAFB is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization therefor donations are tax deductible.

 

We uphold high standards by purchasing and packaging a significant share of our food, as well as partnering with Northwest Harvest, US Dept of Agriculture, generous businesses and local organizations which contribute to our common goals. 

 

Your Food Bank now has a dedicated building with shelving, freezers, a walk-in cooler, a forklift to facilitate loading and unloading food products , a pallet jack and willing volunteers. All of this is made possible throught the generousity of our community!
