The food bank was first introduced by the City of Bonney Lake to meet the needs of struggling individuals and families in Pierce County. When the city closed the food bank years later, a West Tapps church re-opened it to serve those fighting food insecurity. When the church moved and merged with another church out of the city limits, they helped with the transition to ensure a food bank was formally established to meet the ever-growing need in our community.
In 2009, the food bank was formally incorporated as Bonney Lake Community Resources.
In 2018, the name was changed to Bonney Lake Food Bank to better identify with the mission.
In 2020, we moved to a new location at Roots Collective off of 410. This new facility allows us to grow and provide our clients with a dignified experience when visiting 'The Market' our choice-model grocery store.
In 2021, after a four-month assesstment and due diligence process, the Bonney Lake Food Bank and Sumner Community Food Bank have decided to merge to better serve our community. Read our Press Release.
