About the Bench

Created under the leadership of local artist Mary Ellen Bowers, the local middle-school Builders Club participated in the painting of this bench. Using a variety of iridescent paints, the landscape holds the overflowing basket of food, while letting people know that donations to the Auburn Food Bank indeed do make a difference.

About the Organization


The Auburn Food Bank is a volunteer directed organization that provides food, referrals, and emergency assistance to those in need. These services, which are provided year around by a coordinated and systematic approach to the collection and distribution of resources in a responsible and a caring way, will be extended to those living within the Auburn School District # 408 boundaries...which includes the cities of Algona, Pacific, and the newly annexed areas of Lake Tapps and Kent.



You can donate food or cash at the Auburn Food Bank. Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Weekend donations can be arranged, so give us a call to schedule a drop off if needed.

There is also a drop container across the street from the food bank at Top Foods in their parking lot in the far SE corner and are picked up daily.

You can also make a cash donation to Auburn Food Bank online through Network for Good an online giving site dedicated to non-profit organizations.
