Who We Are

We believe ...that God, out of love for us, has created a world in which there is enough food for everyone, if only we are willing to share.

For over 35 years, the St. Leo Food Connection has been fighting hunger in Pierce County. We are a part of St. Leo Catholic Parish. which is located at the heart of the Hilltop Neighborhood. With all our programs, we provide food but also community. St. Leo Food Bank is one of the largest food banks open Tuesday through Saturday. Our Children's Programs are working to fill the gaps of school meals to eliminate child hunger. With our Backpack Program in coordination with Tacoma School District and Clover Park School District, we serve over 30 schools to over 800 children weekly. Springbrook Mobile Food Bank works to provide a weeks worth of food to a neighborhood with limited food access. We love community, and we would love for you to join us in fighting hunger. Check out our website to see how you can be apart. From coming to events to volunteering to donating to our cause, there are many ways for you to get involved.
