In rain or shine, our Springbrook Mobile Food Bank delivers meals every Saturday in Lakewood, WA. Since April 2006, we have been serving this neighborhood with limited food access. This program is funded in part by the City of Lakewood.

The Springbrook neighborhood was selected by the Lakewood Hunger Task Force because of its high percentage of low-income residents and their difficulty in accessing area food banks. The median household income for the neighborhood’s nearly 4,300 residents is $21,688.

Of these families, 32 percent have incomes below the federal poverty level, with 26 percent earning less than $10,000 per year. Barriers to food access for residents include a lack of affordable transportation, limited food resources and social services, and the lack of a neighborhood grocery store.

If you would like to volunteer with this program or have any questions, please connect with our Springbrook Coordinator, Tecora Miller, at tecoram@foodconnection.org. We need help with processing food during the week along with Saturday distribution.

 

Time & Stops

Looking for assistance? Here are our weekly Saturday stops and times. Meet us there, and don’t forget with our check-in volunteers located in their cars.

For your first time, we ask people to bring an identification card as well as a peice of mail to verify the address. If there are others in your household, please bring there first names and dates of birth. If there are 7 or more people, you will need to bring verification for everyone, which can include IDs, school report cards, insurance cards, etc).
