Our food pantry is open 5 days a week to residents of Kittitas County. If you are in need of help with groceries, bring your identification and your own bags and come to FISH during distribution hours. There is no income verification, if you tell FISH you are hungry, we are here to help! The pantry is located at 804 Elmview Road.
Our food pantry is set up like a grocery store. Clients shop with the help of our grocery guides for foods that they can use and enjoy. We offer a selection of fresh produce, dairy, deli, meat, and non-perishable items. The average client takes home 85-100 pounds of food!
