We are working the front lines of hunger... all across Washington State.

We are your coalition of emergency food providers, governed and directed by people in the trenches, representing all areas of the state. We are based in community to serve our communities. Gathering strength through peers, organizing to find common goals, bringing our shared values together to create a strong collective voice of the emergency food system.

A Special Thank You! 

Thanks to United HeathCare for their generous donation to the Washington Food Coalition. In December, United HealthCare presented Executive Director, Trish Twomey, with a check in the amount of $6,000. The donation was made in lue of a conference sponsorship since our 2020 conference was cancelled due to the pandemic. We are grateful for their donation that will continue the work of the coalition to support food banks across the state of Washington.


DONATE to the WASHINGTON FOOD COALITION!

Help support the work of the Washington Food Coalition by making your tax deductible donation today. The WFC supports food programs across the State of Washington by providing technical assistance, and more recently, by providing information and resources on COVID-19. We are sending out a e-newsletter to all members and friends on current COVID resources from the Department of Health, WSDA, the USDA and the Center for Disease Control, plus many others. We have distributed supplies such as gloves, masks, hand sanitizer and signage, to assist programs across the state in serving their clients. We are sponsoring a variety of trainings to inform our members how to navigate during these unprecedented times.
