About South Kitsap Helpline

Serving our community since 1980

The South Kitsap Helpline is 501(c)3 non-profit organization which has served South Kitsap children, adults and senior citizens in need since 1980. It is our goal to help make sure that all of our neighbors who are struggling have the food they need for themselves and their families.

Every day, 40,000 people in Kitsap County struggle to put food on their table. According to a recent study from the USDA, at some point in the year, 1 in 6 Americans won’t know where their next meal will come from. By working with individuals, small businesses, grocery stores, civic groups, schools, and churches across our community, we are working to eliminate hunger in our community.

Our business office and food bank are both open to the public Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 12-5 p.m. We are closed on Wednesdays, weekends and holidays. For inclement weather, we follow the South Kitsap School District weather closures for guidance. For more information about our agency and the services we offer, please call 360.876.4089.

Through our food bank, we distribute more than 1,000,000 pounds of nutritious food annually!
