SLU Food Bank at ICS

Every Monday from 10am to 1pm

The SLU Food Bank at ICS serves people experiencing hunger every Monday, from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. 

Anyone who is hungry and needs food is welcome, no requirements or restrictions. Many clients come to our food bank to supplement the food that they can’t afford to purchase at the grocery store. Many of our clients are on fixed incomes and while some do receive food stamps, this is not enough to provide adequate nutrition throughout the month, and we offer supplemental food to clients’ dwindling pantries. This comes as a welcome relief to many.

This is all accomplished with strong support from NW Harvest, Food Lifeline, Solid Ground and the Food Resource Network Federation. We also partner with Trader Joe’s, Metropolitan Market, and Whole Foods for donations. Many local businesses, schools, apartments and organizations also organize food drives throughout the year to help us keep our shelves full. If you are interested in organizing a food drive, email for any specific needs we may have at this time.

We have many dedicated volunteers who work so hard to keep food coming in as fast as it is going out. Without the many volunteer hands involved with this process, we could not afford to make our food bank such a success.

Volunteers are always needed and welcomed. Please click GET INVOLVED! to learn more.


We rely on volunteers in all facets of our food bank in order to provide healthy fresh food to those needing help putting food on their tables:

  • Grocery Rescue – Saturdays and Sundays
    • Volunteer needed to drive the van and others to sort and pack food.
  • SLU Food Bank at ICS – Mondays
    • Volunteers set-up, distribute food and clean-up, 8:30am – 1:30pm.
  • Pantry Volunteers – Tuesday – Friday
    • Volunteers help sort/organize food and pack Home Delivery boxes.

Please email for more information or to be put on our volunteer schedule.
