 Food - Free Community Meals

It is fortunate that most days of the week there is at least a meal available in the Lynnwood/Edmonds area. Most are clustered on the 196th corridor and can be accessed on foot with a few miles of walking. Unfortunately, a significant number of homeless people have disabilities that limit there ability to walk these kind of distances and bus service is too expensive (costs as much as a bought meal) and not available at all on Sundays.

 Food - Banks

Almost all food banks require proof of address information from guests. It is so that people do not shop multiple food banks. Unfortunately, homeless people have no address and cannot access any of these food banks. The only food bank that does not require proof of address (that we know of) is listed below.
