In 2005, Kevin Sunrise started the La Conner Food Bank as a home-based food bank. In August 2010, the Food Bank moved to the basement of the La Conner Methodist Church and was renamed La Conner Sunrise Food Bank in honor of Kevin. In September 2011, the Food Bank received its non-profit federal tax-exempt status as a public charity, and in 2012, the Food Bank moved to its current location at the La Conner Masonic Lodge.
Our mission is simple, meet the food needs of our community. And we’ve stayed true to that mission. The La Conner Sunrise Food Bank currently distributes food to an average of 90 families weekly.
