The recent KOMO documentary Seattle is Dying has started a flurry of articles and comments about homelessness in our city. In many Seattle neighborhoods, deepening poverty is obvious. People are sleeping outside, struggling without a home. KOMO’s reporting focused on homeless people grappling with substance use disorders and mental health issues. But the truth of homelessness is much more complex.
At Ballard Food Bank, we believe hope is a basic human right. As a vital part of this community, you can help Ballard Food Bank make this possible. We need your support to provide food and hope to our neighbors. Your gift to the Ballard Food Bank helps us stock healthy, nutritious food and strengthen our neighbors’ well-being through our Hub.
We are making Ballard Food Bank stronger and more responsive to the needs of our community. The thousands of people we serve deserve a better, bolder Ballard Food Bank. They need a place where they can access food and other services like housing information, medical care, and veterans’ benefits – all under one roof. We can be that place.
