How can you help?

You can support us a number of ways:

  • Organize a food drive
  • Donate money

We would love to have responsible and reliable people to volunteer.   Come into the food bank and see how we operate and we’ll figure out the best position for you to help your  community.

We rely on donations.

The food bank will accept donations at the food bank during operating hours.  Please bring in your food donations in person.  Do not leave food on the outside ramp, as we are only open Wednesday and Friday mornings and the food could become unusable outside in the weather. Please no expired items.

Call 253-266-7309 before your food drive and we will let you know what types of foods we are short of at that time.

We will bring you crates to store the food in during the drive.

We will pick up the food from your food drive on a Tuesday morning. 

Please pre-arrange food pick up by calling the food bank.

Our History

In 1979 the Senior Center and the Buckley Food Bank shared the Multi-Purpose Center and a van. 

 The food bank was staffed by senior center volunteers for many years. In 1990 the population of Buckley was 3500, when the City provided space and new access at the rear of Buckley Hall for the Buckley Kiwanis Food Bank to move into.

The Buckley Food Bank, in 1993, was notified a 1990 Chevrolet pick-up with a canopy for the sole use of the food bank was purchased by the City of Buckley. 

The Buckley Food Bank was successfully transferred to the Buckley Kiwanis Club in 1997.


Years in Service

 The food bank in 2023 is still operating out of Buckley Hall, and still serving Buckley which now has a population more than doubled what it was in 1990.

About Us

Unlike most food banks, the Buckley Kiwanis Food Bank is a 100% volunteer organization. No one is paid, so all donations are used for items we need to purchase for the food bank clients.
