Welcome to the St. Leo Food Connection!

From its humble beginnings in a garage in 1982, the St. Leo Food Bank has grown into the largest food bank in Pierce County. We are one of the few food banks in the county that is open on Saturdays, and we also have a food line on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.

Our goal is to provide our clients with enough food for three meals for three days.


We accept donations of unopened non-perishable food items as well as appropriately handled perishable items during our business hours. Due to Health Department regulations we cannot accept home canned.preserved food items. Please call our main office (253-383-5048) if you have any questions.

Fight Hunger - Make the Connection

The St. Leo Food Connection Capital Campaign

Food connection make the connection capital campaignFor years our St. Leo Food Bank and Springbrook Mobile Food Bank have operated in cramped quarters on several levels of the Tahoma Center. In addition, the tremendous growth of our Children’s Feeding Programs have forced us to move them to another location, adding multiple logistical hurdles. Next summer we have the opportunity to move all our programs into a single level space in the Tahoma Center, and significantly upgrade our cooler and freezer equipment. To achieve this goal, we are launching Fight Hunger, Make the Connection, the St. Leo Food Connection Capital Campaign.

Tax deductible donations can be sent to: Fight Hunger, St. Leo Food Connection, 710 South 13th Street, Tacoma, WA 98405. For online donations: Click Here
