food lifeline

North currently offers weekly free food boxes.

You do not have to be a student to access food.

Food Lifeline will continue distributing thousands of emergency food boxes to anyone needing help keeping food on the table during this crisis to the following locations. 

These boxes contain fresh produce and assorted dairy items.

The distributions will occur at the following locations and times:

North Seattle College – 9600 College Way North, Seattle, Wa, 98103 (enter on N.E. 95th Street)

  • Tuesday, January 12, 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Rainier Beach Community Center, 8825 Rainier Avenue South, Seattle (Enter off of South Cloverdale)

  • Wednesday, January 13, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Food Lifeline, Hunger Solution Center 815 S 96th St, Seattle, WA 98108

  • Friday, January 15, 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Those wishing to take home boxes can receive a drive-up, no-touch distribution, and there will also be walk-up distribution.

ANYONE can have access to this food. 

This is a confidential distribution, so there will be no paperwork or qualification. Food Lifeline is only asking for zip codes to track its efforts.

Food Lifeline encourages everyone to take home this nutritious food. 

We are all struggling during this crisis, and no one should hesitate to accept this help.

Balancing work, life and college isn’t easy. That’s why we’ve partnered with United Way to help students navigate financial challenges and cover basic needs while in school. The Benefits Hub offers one-stop financial assistance through one-on-one coaching in the following areas:

  • Emergency funds
  • Food access
  • Housing support
  • Financial coaching & paying for college
  • Other benefits, including FAFSA/WAFSA support, reduced bus fare, childcare, tax preparation and more

We work with you to make sure that no matter what, you are able to stay in school and complete your program.
