The White Center Food Bank will bring together a wide variety of local restaurants for a family-friendly fundraiser at its “Taste of White Center” event on Saturday, June 29, 2024.

This will be the third annual tasting event, which will run from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in downtown White Center on 16th Ave SW between Roxbury and SW 100th Street.

With 30+ restaurants participating, attendees purchase $5 tickets to try a variety of foods like banh mi sandwiches, bubble tea, tacos, pizza and much more. Iconic restaurants like Puffy Pandy, Tomo, El Catrín, and others are ready to serve up amazing bites! Join us for a fun-filled event with food, vendors, a kid’s area and live music!

Each ticket is an opportunity to taste a small plate, drink or dessert from participating restaurants.

All ticket proceeds support the White Center Food Bank, while sponsorship dollars go to the restaurants to purchase ingredients and pay for event costs.

Tickets will be available for purchase at three locations in downtown White Center. A ‘menu’ will be given to each attendee at the time of ticket purchase, with a map and details on restaurants and items available. This is a first come, first served event, with limited quantities available at each establishment.

White Center Food Bank looks forward to hosting this celebration and sharing the diverse culinary talents of our neighborhood around the one thing that always brings community together: FOOD!

More Info:


The White Center Food Bank began in the mid-1970’s as an emergency response to assist struggling families and individuals in the greater White Center and Highline areas during a major economic downturn. Much like today, many in the community were faced with difficult economic conditions that left them in need of food resources. We were there then. We are here now.

Current food bank programs include daytime, and seniors-only food distributions; expanded home deliveries; mobile food bank program to three senior housing sites; pop-up food pantries; a Baby Pantry for diapers, formula, baby foods and more; cultural foods buying program and grocery rescue. Intake services are provided in nine languages.

In 2023, we served over 37,000 households, 107,000 individuals and distributed over 1.4 million pounds of food.
