Top Ten

Many times people will ask what are our top needs at the food bank.  After watching what goes out the door the most, here is our list of our top ten requests:

  • Cereal
  • Canned Fruit
  • Rice
  • Pasta
  • Spaghetti Sauce
  • Canned Tuna
  • Peanut Butter
  • Hamburger Helper
  • Eggs
  • Soup

These food items may be dropped off at Tacoma Alliance Church throughout the week (except Fridays).  Please call 253.566.8782 to make arrangements. Or, bring them by the food bank on Saturday from 10 AM – 1 PM.  Thanks!

Wondering how you can help The Blessing? There are three main ways we receive donations from the community:

1) Personal Donations

We have a red bucket donation center inside the church lobby for non-perishable goods. Many people have committed to bringing one or two kinds of food each week to help stock the shelves. This is our main source of donations (check out our Top Ten post).


2) Corporate Assistance

We have been fortunate to be able to partner with some community businesses to support our food bank. Our local James Center Fred Meyer recently allowed us to hold a food drive outside the store and accept donations from shoppers. Fred Meyer was very encouraging and supportive of our mission.


3) Community Food Networks

We have been blessed by being able to offer perishable goods–such as fresh bread and produce–through a partnership with Faith Harvest Helpers located in Yelm, WA. Each week, a team from Tacoma Alliance collects extra produce and baked goods from local farmers and bakers to offer at The Blessing. We are very thankful to be in a partnership with the Faith Harvest Helpers.
