Common Threads' new food truck delivers free meals where they are needed most: to kids.

It’s nice to meet you, Common Threads’ food truck! Tell me a little bit about yourself.

Hey there, I’m Common Threads’ new mobile food truck. I will provide FREE, scratch cooked, delicious meals to hungry Whatcom County kids in the places and at the times they need them most. 

My stops will also include fun hands-on food and cooking activities, and will be paired with other services such as a WiFi hotspot and library book delivery.

Additionally, I’ll be available to serve at school and community events.

Q: What will you serve?

A: I will serve warm, scratch-cooked meals and snacks featuring seasonal produce sourced from Common Threads’ school gardens and local farms. My meals will be full of color, flavor, crunch, and choice and served with love, dignity, and care!

Q: Where can we find you?

A: You’ll be able to find me bringing nourishing meals directly to hungry kids in low income and rural areas, stopping at apartment complexes, community centers, and schools throughout Whatcom County. Please fill out the form below if you have suggestions for places I should stop.

Q: When will we be able to meet you?

A: Right now I’m getting some finishing touches and being loaded up with good food. I will officially launch in spring 2023. Subscribe to Common Threads’ newsletter and social media accounts for updates!

Q: Why does this matter?

Q; The hungriest kids in our community rely on free school meals to fill their bellies. Too many of them go home to places that don’t have enough food, or to places where the foods that are available are the cheapest and most highly processed foods. Out of school hours can be particularly hungry times for kids in low-income and rural areas. I can help fill this gap, bringing delicious meals directly to kids during after school hours and school breaks.


The food truck is in Bellingham, but we still need help stocking it with food and supplies. We’ve done the math – it costs about $3.00 to give a kid a fresh cooked, healthy meal. Will you support this program with a donation today?
