Largest Response to Hunger
Established in 2011, Feeding Washington facilitates the movement of fresh fruits and vegetables from Washington producers into the hands of those who need it most. Along with our two members, Food Lifeline and Second Harvest, we deliver healthy food to over 525 food banks and meal centers across the state to get fresh produce to the 1 in 7 people in Washington state who struggle with hunger.
We rescue over 3 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables each month from statewide farmers, packers and shippers. Because of the abundance of produce in the region and the generosity of our partners, Feeding Washington is able to not only support hunger relief efforts in Washington but also to supply produce to the rest of the Feeding America food bank network across the country.
Combining the resources of Feeding Washington with Food Lifeline and Second Harvest to use scale and best operational practices, we are able to maximize our efficiency to feed 900,000 Washingtonians who don’t always have enough to eat.
