University District Food Bank

University District Food Bank has served the Northeast Seattle community for 35 years. We operate a walk-in food bank, home delivery service for homebound seniors, a weekend backpack program for kids at nearby public schools, and a rooftop garden. The food bank is located next door to the University Branch of the Seattle Public Library and is co-located with 50 units of low income housing including 20 dedicated to young adults and a job skills training coffee shop. When dropping off a food donation, you can enter the building's garage and come through our receiving doors on the left side.

ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!

State Cooperative Extension Web Sites

The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
