Gig Harbor/ Peninsula FISH

Who We Are

Mission: Neighbors helping neighbors in need with food and other assistance as they move toward self-sufficiency.

What We Do

Gig Harbor Peninsula FISH is more than a Food Bank.  We are over 240 volunteers who, in addition to distributing food, issue financial assistance to pay rent, water, power and other basic utilities; provide urgent transportation to medical appointments; issue summer camp and summer school funds for school age children; distribute school supplies for children in our support areas; identify counseling assistance for school age children and their families, distribute used clothing, small household goods and appliances, Christmas baskets and toys, funds for educational expenses to college students who live in the Gig Harbor and Peninsula area, such as books, supplies and transportation to school; and are telephone monitors who answer calls from those in need. Local markets donate food to our Food Bank, and we hold a food drive at Safeway each month.  Many students use Gig Harbor Peninsula FISH for their senior projects or community service hours by organizing food drives or other events that benefit the GHP FISH or by volunteering in the Food Bank.
