Along the journey from Northwest Harvest's humble roots in 1967 as the social justice program of a coalition of local activists, to its position today as the leader in fighting hunger in Washington State, the nonprofit had a moment of clarity: it needed to think big to truly effect change. That "think big" perspective has led to an organization that today:
- Provides healthy, culturally appropriate food to every corner of our state through a network of more than 375 food banks, meal programs, and high-need schools that reach hungry children, seniors, the working poor, rural residents, the homeless, and more in a manner that respects their dignity.
- Spearheads a larger movement — in partnership with donors, volunteers, food producers, social service agencies, and public officials — to make an impact on the root causes of hunger and poverty in our state.
A 50th anniversary is often a time for reflection. For Northwest Harvest, the anniversary is a call to a future at the intersection of food and health, where we work with clients and community partners to form a movement to address the health of our community, and become an ever more efficient, inspiring, and impactful leader in the fight to end hunger in Washington.
