Trish has been involved with emergency food programs for the past 36 years. After founding and directing the University District Food Bank in Seattle for ten years, she moved on to Solid Ground where she held advancing positions culminating as Director of the Hunger Action Center.  In this role, she provided technical and administrative support to the coalition of food banks in Seattle (Seattle Food Committee) as well as oversaw several anti-hunger and nutrition programs. She also was the EFAP Lead for 16 years for the Seattle Food Banks. She served as the Membership Director of the coalition for 5 1/2 years and currently serves as the Executive Director. 

Trish has held many leadership positions in anti-hunger coalitions and organizations throughout the state. She served two terms as the co-chair of the Washington Food Coalition and served five years on the Emergency Food Assistance Program (EFAP) statewide advisory work group. She represented King County food banks on the county’s EFSP Board for 28 years and is a past president of the Washington State Food and Nutrition Council and co-chair of the Anti-Hunger and Nutrition Coalition.

Trish holds a BA in Sociology from Washington State University and a Certificate in Human Services Management from the University of Washington. 


 We are your best resource for tools, innovations, best practices, advocacy, and general questions (EFAP, TEFAP, etc.) so that every emergency food agency in the state of Washington can make the most positive impact possible
within their communities and for those that they serve.
