Members at large:
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 that lead to more self-sufficient and fulfilling lives.
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.
