First Ballard Bites & Brews Sunday!

Sustaining community through food.

Come on out to Ballard this Sunday afternoon, Aug. 28 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. to support the efforts of Ballard Food Bank keeping food on the plates of our neighbors most impacted by inflation. The event will take place adjacent to the food bank at 14th Ave NW between NW 49th and 50th Streets. The festival is 21+ and will feature live music, tastings from 15 Ballard and Fremont breweries/cideries, and food from local restaurants including Ethan Stowell Restaurants, Veraci Pizza, Mainstay Provisions, Frelard Tamales, Plenty of Clouds, Lagana Foods, and Community Loaves. All proceeds from the event will benefit the food bank. Tickets are $75 and are available online and at the door the day of the event.

If you’re interested in supporting Ballard Food Bank throughout the year join our awesome Ballard Farmers Market gleaners! Summer produce is in full swing, and the Ballard Farmers Market gleaners are regularly gleaning 400-plus pounds of produce every Sunday for the Ballard Food Bank! We’re always looking for new volunteers to help. Volunteers can expect to help by collecting produce from the vendors, carrying boxes and sorting the collected food into containers at the Food Bank. Gleaning takes place from 1:45 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays, and we’re flexible with how often you volunteer – even giving your time once a month makes an impact in our community.
