The City of Stanwood features local businesses in a bimonthly Business Spotlight on the City website. Featured businesses are those that have chosen Stanwood as their home and whose story highlights the benefits of locating in Stanwood. The aim of this program is to showcase local businesses and foster pride in Stanwood’s business community and a strong local economy.
Featured businesses must be located in the City of Stanwood and hold a valid Stanwood Business License. Businesses featured in this program must have a positive impact on the community, and be able to provide a testimonial as to why they have chosen Stanwood as their home.
Businesses interested in being featured may contact the Community Development Department at 360-629-2181.

Stanwood Camano Food Bank & Thrift Store
Operating in its current location since 2005, the Stanwood Camano Thrift Store and Food Bank has been providing services for our community for over 40 years when Jeanie Ovenell founded the food bank out of the trunk of her car. The dedication of volunteer staff allows proceeds from the thrift store to go directly to the food bank. This supports the food bank service and programs.
These services and programs provide for food purchases for staples for the food bank clients, the back pack program and summer meals program for students, Christmas House, and Warm Coats for Kids. Additionally, the thrift store is able to provide vouchers for clients as well as tents and sleeping bags for our homeless population.
The Thrift Store and Food Bank appreciates the dedication and support of our community and welcomes community involvement through donations, volunteering, and assistance through its many programs. Learn more about volunteering with the Food Bank and Thrift Store.
