Regional Distribution Organization

With completion of the most recent addition to our Warehouse & Distribution Center in Tumwater, we now have 25,000 square feet of dry and cold storage. This increased capacity allows us to distribute greater amounts of federal foods such as TEFAP, CSFP (for those over 60), and state subsidies known as EFAP. We also serve as a Regional Distribution Organization for Food Lifeline, a regional partner, to a four-county area that includes Thurston, Mason, Lewis and Kitsap.


To strengthen and further the mission of ending hunger in our community, we partner closely with emergency food distribution partners inside and outside of Thurston County. Working with community partners, we assist them to help increase the amount of nutritious food they are able to distribute to their clients. Our Partner agencies are food pantries, senior centers, community meal programs, shelters, and more — a network of nonprofits working to feed their communities:
