Partners making a difference
We are proud to continue to support Northwest Harvest, a partner since 2013. In coordination with other hunger relief organizations, they are using more mobile units to deliver ready-to-eat meals, shelf stable food boxes and emergency food boxes to communities throughout Washington. To adhere to current COVID-19 restrictions and needs, they have converted the SODO Community Market into a grocery bag pick up facility, allowing people to receive food from a safe distance in cars. Northwest Harvest also serves as an essential community resource, providing information for those in need of food and those wanting to help. Thank you Northwest Harvest for you commitment, hope and healing as the demand and need for food continues to grow.
