- Food Pantry – open to the public (in partnership with the University District Food Bank, YMCA, and Solid Ground)
Mercy Magnuson Place is located on the Magnuson Park Campus in the NE Seattle neighborhood, where resident families have access to greenspace, recreation facilities, and it’s surrounded by more than 40 nonprofits and community organizations on the campus.
