In Downtown Seattle, the Pike Market Senior Center strives to make each day better and safer for older adults; the Pike Market Food Bank serves people of all ages who face hunger. Together, we provide services, activities, and support to promote healthier, more self-sufficient and fulfilling lives.
The Pike Market Senior Center & Food Bank believes that systemic racism is prevalent and acknowledges our role within those systems. Systemic racism has harmed many people and its eradication would greatly benefit our society.
We will demonstrate our commitment to equity by examining our policies and practices to eliminate bias, and by collaborating with community partners to promote the equitable interests and well-being of staff, clients, and the community at large.
In the 1970s, the visionaries who restored the Pike Place Market embraced
the senior citizens living downtown and mandated the inclusion of low-income
housing to preserve the essential character of the Market.
The Pike Market Senior Center sprang out of this community's need for a
place to gather and socialize. PMSC has grown in response to the needs of
this community and those of the population of homeless seniors who live
About 1,500 seniors visit each year for free meals, healthy activities, and access to skilled social workers.
The Pike Market Food Bank (originally the Downtown Food Bank) joined with the Senior Center in 1981 and
provides free groceries to anyone experiencing food insecurity. PMFB
serves over 6,600 clients.
