Washington Food Coalition

We are the front lines of hunger... all across Washington State.

We are your coalition of emergency food providers, governed and directed by people in the trenches, representing all areas of the state. We are based in community to serve our communities. Gathering strength through peers, organizing to find common goals, bringing our shared values together to create a strong collective voice of the emergency food system.

Advocacy

"Food Security is a situation that exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life."  - 1996 World Food Summit (U.N.)

The Washington Food Coalition follows current events that may affect nutrition programs that our members utilize to serve their communities. We also pay close attention to the many related programs that serve the families we serve every day. Many of these programs work in tandem with our efforts to support people through a hard time and hopefully into a better place. 

For more information about nutrition programs, our legislative agenda, and the latest happenings and actions you can take, check out our latest updates, what we are watching, and follow us on Facebook or twitter.
