North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank expands to Bitter Lake

Monday, June 12, 2017

From Kelly Brown, Executive Director
North Helpline Emergency Services and Food Bank

This year, thanks to your support, we are able to expand our work to make sure our neighbors have food on their table and a roof over their heads. 

North Helpline is taking over the operation of a second food bank site and will open North Helpline Bitter Lake on July 1st.

Bitter Lake is an area of high need with a 17% food insecurity rate. Although we serve the Bitter Lake zip code, we do not see a large number of people accessing the food bank at North Helpline.

That is probably because public transportation in Seattle is challenging if you are traveling east to west. It can take multiple transfers and over an hour to travel from Bitter Lake to Lake City by bus.

It is vital that our neighbors in northwest Seattle have better access to food. Support North Helpline Bitter Lake today and make a donation !

North Helpline has a long history of responding to our community's needs. A need that we have increasingly seen and heard is access to mental and behavioral health. We are happy to share we have a new partner in our clinic space, Valley Cities Mental Health.

We are excited about these opportunities to better serve our neighbors!
