Welcome to the St. Leo Food Connection!
From its humble beginnings in a garage in 1982, the St. Leo Food Bank has grown into one of the largest food banks in Pierce County. We are one of the few food banks in the county that is open on Saturdays, and we also have a food line on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Our goal is to provide our clients with enough food for three meals for three days.
We accept donations of unopened non-perishable food items as well as appropriately handled perishable items during our business hours. Due to Health Department regulations we cannot accept home canned.preserved food items. Please call our main office (253-383-5048) if you have any questions.

Hunger is Real. This Summer, Don't Take a Stand. Take a Ride.
Join us Saturday, June 20, 2015 for the 10th Annual Wheels to Meals, the annual fundraiser for the Food Connection. Choose from six rides through the scenic Puyallup Valley and surrounding area. The 2014 ride was one of the most successful yet—raising more than $25,000 for our emergency food programs—and we're hoping to surpass that this year!
You'll enjoy great support, including mechanical support from Old Town Bicycle, SAG wagons and motorcycles, great food along the course, and a finish-line festival with live music and a beer/wine/root-beer-float garden and plenty to eat. All that, and you'll be helping provide food for thousands of Pierce County households.
Choose Your Ride
There's a ride for everyone, and all of them support the work of the Food Connection! Choose from 10, 20, 32, 56 or 75 miles.
Fight Hunger - Make the Connection
The St. Leo Food Connection Capital Campaign
For years our St. Leo Food Bank and Springbrook Mobile Food Bank have operated in cramped quarters on several levels of the Tahoma Center. In addition, the tremendous growth of our Children’s Feeding Programs have forced us to move them to another location, adding multiple logistical hurdles. Next summer we have the opportunity to move all our programs into a single level space in the Tahoma Center, and significantly upgrade our cooler and freezer equipment. To achieve this goal, we are launching Fight Hunger, Make the Connection, the St. Leo Food Connection Capital Campaign.
Tax deductible donations can be sent to: Fight Hunger, St. Leo Food Connection, 710 South 13th Street, Tacoma, WA 98405. For online donations: Click Here
