We Welcome Guests to Our Food Bank

We treat everyone who comes through our doors as “guests,” because they are. And we serve everyone without regard to faith, religion, age, sex, national origin, creed, or color. We strive to serve everyone. However, since we do receive food from government sources, we are required to manage two food lines at our facility.

Blessed Sacrament Sunday Dinner

Every Sunday, Seattle’s best full course hot meal is prepared and served to our “guests” at Blessed Sacrament Church at 5041 Ninth Avenue Northeast in the University District. The Sunday Dinner, operated by the St. Vincent de Paul Blessed Sacrament Conference, has been feeding the hungry for 40 years. During that time an estimated 900,000 meals have fed needy people who are homeless, unemployed or people living on low incomes. Fresh and non-perishable food donations are always welcomed.
