 Important Advocacy Alert

SNAP benefits may be cut again. Congress will vote on federal budget proposals by the end of next week. Contact your representative and our Senators and ask them to protect SNAP benefits. Your voice matters! Please go to #FillUpYourPlate website & let Rep. Jim McGovern know what SNAP means to you.


 Seattle Empty Bowls


Join the Ballard Food Bank for this beloved Spring event! On Saturday, April 25th from 4-7 p.m. we'll be dishing up soup, bread, and good cheer at the Nordic Heritage Museum. Local potters have handcrafted all of the bowls and cups that will be on display. Suggested donation: $20. All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Ballard Food Bank!
