The Mission of Ballard Food Bank is to assist individuals and families in maintaining self-sufficiency by providing assistance for basic needs.
Our Vision is one of a community-based organization that provides services to our neighbors in crisis, limited only by the support and contributions of the Ballard and Magnolia communities. We ask donors and volunteers to think of their support not as helping “Ballard Food Bank”, but as helping their neighbors in need. Ballard Food Bank is simply the agency that facilitates the delivery of their help to those sometimes-disenfranchised persons that live in our neighborhood.
Our Mission, Policy and Values guide us through the many decisions, both big and small, that help the Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers conduct the business of helping our neighbors in crisis.
