The Washington Food Coalition is made up of hunger relief agencies and programs from every corner of the state, and a whole slew of dedicated and supportive organizations and individuals that believe that no one in Washington should go hungry.

We are a peer governed and directed organization that works to help ALL of our communities in the fight against hunger.

Our members know we are stronger together. We leverage our knowledge and experiences to empower one another in our work to keep our communities fed. We come together as a shared and collective voice to educate and tackle the issue of hunger and poverty.

We continue to evolve, innovate and share creative, healthful and smart solutions to hunger, whether that is childhood hunger, senior hunger, hunger among the homeless population, hunger among military families and veterans, hunger in rural areas or in urban/suburban food deserts. We are a coalition of hardworking people that strive to meet and address hunger, where and how we are faced with it, in every community of Washington State. We are the front lines of hunger in your town or city, working together for a greater outcome for us all.

We are looking for some expertise and guidance in communications that can help us move our coalition to the next level. We are a statewide coalition of emergency food providers. Our strength comes from our ability to effectively bring people together and foster some amazing peer to peer sharing of knowledge, experience, and innovations. 

This is an AmeriCorps VISTA position with a one year commitment. 

AmeriCorps VISTA members receive a modest living allowance and limited health benefit options during the project with the option of a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award or post service stipend after completing the assignment/project term.
