1 in 8 people face hunger in Western Washington. 1 in 5 of them are kids. Most food bank guests have jobs and nearly all visitors have homes. Financial and medical difficulties force many people to choose between food, utilities, and medicine. In other words...people just like you and I struggle.
Hunger impacts all of us. Hungry children can't learn, hungry adults are less productive and miss work more frequently, and hungry seniors often must choose between medicine and food.
With the generosity of businesses, organizations and individuals, we are able to offer relief and help end hunger in our neighborhoods.
