An estimated 1.6 million Washingtonians are at risk of not having enough food to eat. That is double the number of people than before the virus outbreak. That number may continue to rise as hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians struggle with joblessness and limited resources.
As demand is soaring, donations to food banks are down by 70%.
WA Food Fund is a relief fund that supports food banks and pantries across the state so they can maintain their food supply. Our statewide food supply chain remains steady, and deliveries to grocery stores continue uninterrupted. There is enough food across the state of Washington, but it’s not getting onto the tables of those in need.
Three Washington-based organizations working on the frontlines of food insecurity – Food Lifeline, Northwest Harvest and Second Harvest – will use these funds to distribute food to hundreds of food banks across the state from our cities to our most rural communities.
Even a few dollars can help put food on every table in Washington.
