Our mission is to provide food for people in need with compassion, dignity and respect.

In 2023 we celebrate 50 years of serving our community.  Nourish Pierce County has provided food and emergency service referrals to people in need since 1973. With six food bank locations and award-winning mobile food banks that serve 15 additional sites, Nourish Pierce County serves tens of thousands of individuals each month.   

The largest group we serve are children, while our fastest growing group are older adults.  Nourish Pierce County helps address food insecurity among young adults by visiting University of Washington Tacoma, Tacoma Community College, Pierce College, Bates Technical College, and Clover Park Technical College.  

In 2022 Nourish Pierce County served more than 52,000 unduplicated individuals, or 6% of the population of Pierce County.

With the assistance of hundreds of volunteers, our goal is to provide each person or family with enough food to make three nutritious meals a day for three days. All Nourish food banks operate on a self-serve model, allowing clients to select the foods that best meet their family’s needs.  Clients are asked to limit their visits to once a week, but no one in need is turned away.
