The Power of Food
The power of food delivers nourishment to the body, helps children grow and learn, and creates vitality in our communities. The Market at Bonney Lake Food Bank celebrates the power of food through inviting displays of fresh produce, healthy recipes, and culturally inclusive food for our customers.
By providing dignity of choice, access to healthy foods, options for home delivery, and flexibility of shopping hours, we have managed to make game-changing strides in removing barriers to health equity.
We have some powerful quotes from our customers describing the impact that The Market provides their families:
“Your food steward shopped with me, pointing to food I could eat after recently diagnosed with diabetes, offering guidance on recipes, preparing different foods, and helpful tips. I can’t thank you enough for the simple conversation that gave me the confidence to make better choices for maintaining my health.”
“I save my gas money so that I can drive here. It’s worth it because I can find the ingredients, I need to make healthy food for my kids and me.”
"I love that The Market has all the local foods I see at farmers markets that i just can't afford on my fixed budget,"
The power of food brings us all together with a universal language we all speak in creating healthier and more vital communities.
For GiveBig WA 2022, all donations will purchase nutritious foods for our customers this year. As our customer base continues to rise, it is necessary to fill the gap of food donations with purchases.
