Growing food justice through collective action.
Food Justice Takes All of Us
Throughout Northwest Harvest’s more than 50-year history, we’ve shaped our work around a simple question: How can we make sure that everyone in our state has enough to eat? While this question may seem straightforward in nature, the response is more complex.
We at Northwest Harvest refuse to accept hunger as inevitable for our neighbors and communities. Our strong foundation – one built through generosity and partnership with the community – has made it possible for us to work with many organizations across the state to push the limits of what is possible.
GiveBIG is an opportunity to learn more about Washington organizations that may not have the same name recognition as Northwest Harvest. We encourage you to learn about and support grassroots organizations that are led by communities often left behind as a result of systemic injustices – particularly Black, Indigenous and People of Color organizations working to end hunger and financial insecurity. Check out this list of our partner organizations within the Food Access Network and Give BIG to these groups! Link: https://www.northwestharvest.org/our-work/food-access-network/
If you do make your gift to Northwest Harvest this GiveBIG, we will dedicate those funds to our Black, Indigenous, and People of Color Market Voucher program, a program that purchases vouchers/gift cards from Black, Indigenous and People of Color-owned businesses and distributes them to community groups working with Black, Indigenous and People of Color-populations. This program boosts the local economy and provides needed resources to those who need them.
Our efforts to grow food justice will be stronger when these organizations are thriving. We cannot do this work alone. On behalf of our community, thank you for your endless dedication to ending hunger in Washington.
Northwest Harvest thanks all GiveBIG supporters who are working toward the basic common goal of providing food today, and eliminating hunger tomorrow.
