Entiat Valley Community Services Food Bank
Is a nonprofit, volunteer driven, charitable service organization providing food, clothing, basic necessities, health clinic, benefit services, employment skills and job search, transportation and meals to Chelan and Douglas Counties families who are struggling to make ends meet. Our primary mission is to move people forward from hunger, poverty and homeless by providing nutritional food and empowerment. We strive to be worthy and honorable custodians of the gifts we receive on behalf of those we serve. For every dollar donated to us, over 97 cents goes toward food and services. And no one who comes to EVCSFB is turned away or goes away hungry.

Hold a Food Drive
Food drives and fundraisers are key to our success. Anyone who has been a part of the community for any time at all is familiar with major EVCSFB events and our food drives. Each year the Entiat School Leadership Class, Boy Scouts', Entiat Food Center and Entiat Ranger District/Forest Service conduct food drives in the fall.
While these big events get a lot of much-deserved attention, we never want to give the impression that these food drives have no impact. In fact, they do, and - in some ways - they can reach people in ways some of our bigger campaigns never will.
Food and non-food drives are needed all year long. EVCSFB has the staff and materials necessary to make your Drive work perfectly. If
you would like more information Please Click Here.
