The North County Food Bank and Clothing Bank is excited to announce that we will be welcoming our neighbors back inside the Food Bank building starting Tuesday, April 5. In addition to shelter from wind and rain, you’ll find our free racks stocked with extra goodies for Food Bank clients as well as children’s books and information about community resources.

The Clothing Bank will also be open for browsing. Full racks of clothing, linens, and other miscellaneous items await you. You do not need to be a Food Bank client to access the Clothing Bank. It’s a community resource for all who need clothing.

The Food Bank also offers free at-home Covid tests and masks if you need them. We do ask that folks wear masks while in the building to protect our volunteers, most of whom are over 65. Clients not wishing to mask can have their orders taken outside and we’ll bring the food out.

A special thanks to our community for its ongoing support of the Food Bank during the pandemic. We really appreciated all the coats and warm clothing donated during our February coat drive.

Hours are 12 pm – 3 pm on Tuesdays. We can also take donations of food, clothing, or hygiene items during those hours. We are located at 278 Rowe Street in Wheeler, across the parking lot from the Nehalem Bay Health Center and Pharmacy (Rinehart Clinic).
