Your Financial Donations Count
An estimated 1 in 5 children and 1 in 5 seniors in Washington suffer from hunger.
Food Security means access to enough safe and nutritious food at all times to live an active, healthy life. Without help from concerned neighbors, many parents here in West Seattle would not have the resources to provide enough nutritious food to adequately feed their family. Many seniors would have to make choices between maintaining their house, paying for medicine and utilities, or paying for food. Poor nutrition can lead to serious health and cognitive consequences for children and adults.
Your monetary donations help us fill our client requests each day. We are very thankful that we have the funds we need to purchase quality, nutritious goods for our on-site Grocery Model and off-site Mobile Food Programs, emergency financial assistance for those in times of crisis with our Helpline Services, diapers for our Baby & Child Corner and kid-friendly food for our Backpack Program. Monetary donations provide us with the flexibility to focus on our client’s most immediate needs quickly and efficiently.
