Learn About What We Do
Washington grows a variety of produce items, many of those on such a large scale that they supply not only our state but also the rest of the country and are even shipped internationally. But what happens when there is good product for which there isn’t a commercial market? That’s where Feeding Washington steps in. We rescue over 3 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables each month from statewide farmers, packers and shippers. We connect this good, nutritious produce with those who need it most.
With our two members, Food Lifeline and Second Harvest, we get fresh fruits and vegetables directly into the hands of those who need it most, working with 525 food banks and meal centers across the state.
Thanks to the abundance of agriculture in our state and the generosity of our partners, we are able to send excess produce to those in need nationwide via the Feeding America food bank network.
We help the 1 in 7 people in Washington State who struggle with food insecurity, and the 1 in 5 children who don’t always have enough to eat. Often, fresh fruits and vegetables are among the first items cut from a grocery budget. With our two members, Food Lifeline and Second Harvest, we feed 900,000 people across the state with this fresh, nutritious food they might not otherwise be able to access.
Each month, we source over 3 million pounds of fresh produce for those in need.
