Presently the food bank is run 100% by a team of about 10 volunteers. There are many tasks involved in this ministry which could be served well by more joining in. Jobs include setting up tables, chairs, setting out the donated food and clothing items, giving out ticket numbers for an orderly distribution system of items inside the building, on-site cooking of hot dogs and hamburgers, cleaning up and putting everything away afterwards and the collecting donations from the many generous businesses from Issaquah to North Bend.
All are welcome and encouraged to show up from 1:00-3:00pm on Thursdays under the bridge to join in this social hour and offer friendship and conversation. (Feel free to bring a crockpot of stew as well!) In the summertime remember this ministry when your garden produces in excess of your own needs.
Pray for this ministry to meet the needs of the community as God directs for an abundance of food, baby needs, clothing, friendship and God’s love.
If you’d like to donate, please make checks out to Raging River Community Church and include a note that the funds are for the food bank. Thank you.

Hello to everyone at Raging River!
Is the foodbank open during the coro virus pandemic? Are there different guidelines?

Hi Tammy, I’ll check with our food bank director and see if he knows of anyone who delivers to Spanaway.
Thank you so much for all the help you have given so many people thru the years including myself. I do not know how I would have made it thru some of the struggles in the past few years off and on without you guys. I did volunteer a few times myself and have so much love in my heart for you all .thank you
It is a privilege to serve you during your time of need. Additionally, thank you for volunteering at the food bank. Blessings to you.
Do you need paper grocery bags? I have a lot!
Yes! That would be great. You can drop them off any weekday morning or on a Thursday afternoon.
Perfect! I live close so I should be able to drop them off this week.
Hi I work before, during and after those hours. Is there any way I could go there earlier or on a weekend?
If you want to give me your phone number, one of the food bank managers can call you to see if something can be worked out.
You can email it to email@example.com.
