Thanks to a partnership with Emergency Food Network and Small Tribes of Washington, the Puyallup Tribe will distribute fresh fruit, dried foods and soft drinks on a first-come, first-served basis, during a series of drive-thru food banks.


This program is open to the Tribe’s members, community, and neighbors. The food banks will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 5.


Distribution will be drive-up:


  • Write down your name and size of your family on a piece of paper.
  • Come in through the valet parking lane.
  • To maintain social distancing, don’t roll your window down – just show the paper to staff. They’ll send you forward.
  • If you have an automatic trunk, open it and staff will load the food.
  • If you don’t have an automatic trunk, staff will put the food on a table and then go inside for you to load.

Anyone with questions may contact foodbank@puyalluptribe-nsn.gov or Chester Earl, community events coordinator, at 253-307-3659.


Please note: Food deliveries are available, but you must sign up in advance. To be added to the delivery list please email foodbank@puyalluptribe-nsn.gov or contact Chester Earl, community events coordinator, at 253-307-3659.


Elders who have difficulty driving or don’t have transportation may call the Elders Department at 253-680-5480 to arrange for food to be delivered.
