Need Help?

EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE – Bremerton Foodline (BFL) tries to provide emergency food sufficient for a balanced diet for three to four days. Specific quantities and contents vary with family size and item availability. Clients may request this service once a month.

To receive assistance, new clients need to bring picture identification and proof of current address (e.g. utility bill, medical coupon, etc.).

COMMODITY SUPPLEMENTAL FOOD PROGRAM – BFL is a distributor of USDA commodities. Those eligible for commodities need to bring identification showing a local address and declare that they meet state income limits. Availability and contents vary monthly depending on what is distributed to us.

HOLIDAY BASKETS – Special food baskets are provided at Thanksgiving and Christmas, which are enhanced with holiday-related food items.

CLOTHING CLOSET – Because all clothing is donated, the BFL has a limited amount available for clients.  There are signs in the lobby listing the number of items each client or their family can select each day.
