Mission

GreenHouse Food Bank serves our community by providing the most basic needs for people of all ages.

Notes from the nonprofit

10-03-2023 Thank you for reviewing the GreenHouse Food Bank Guidestar Profile! We appreciate your time and care. We are a small food bank accomplishing big things. Every week we assist about 150 food-scarce neighbors and their families with friendly, nonjudgmental service of food, clothing, and energy assistance. We do our best to identify needs and provide resources such as helping people sign up for food stamps, winter weatherization assistance, free cell phones, and government provided monthly senior food boxes. We do all we can to take a layer of pressure off everyone who comes to see us. If you are a potential donor, please consider making a gift to us. We are preparing to build a new food distribution center as our 1917 house needs to be replaced. Any gift from $5 to $500,000 would help us better serve North Spokane County residents. Thank you. Sincerely, Libby Fitzgerald, Director
