Community Services of Moses Lake (CSML) is a nonprofit agency. Our mission statement is, "We seek to alleviate hunger in our community by providing assistance that is simple in style, and exemplifies the spirit of providing for one's neighbor.” Our primary functions are the operation of the Moses Lake, Washington Food Bank, and distribution of food to 33 food banks located in the five central Washington counties of Adams, Benton, Grant, Lincoln, and Yakima. Collectively, these 33 food banks provide supplemental food to approximately 10,000 low-income families each month. CSML has been in continual operation for 57 years since its non-profit formation on December 5, 1956.
All local donations will be matched by the *M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust up to $300,000 to complete this meaningful project.

Distribution Center Update!
After many years of planning and hoping, the new Regional Distribution Center and Food Bank is becoming a reality! The Moses Lake, Washington Food Bank, distributes food to 33 food banks located in the five central Washington counties of Adams, Benton, Grant, Lincoln, and Yakima. Collectively, these 33 food banks provide supplemental food to approximately 10,000 low-income families each month. The project will improve distribution of nutritional emergency and supplemental food to low-income families and homeless persons located in central Washington, improving the health and welfare of our at-risk populations. We are so thankful to Senator Judy Warnick for securing Capital Grants for us to finally complete this worthy project. These Grants along with Grants from The *MJ Murdock Charitable Trust, the Sunderland Foundation and many local grants and donations are making our project become reality.
