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.
