SNOHOMISH COUNTY FOOD BANK COALITION
Our Coalition partner agencies, Food Lifeline, Northwest Harvest, Washington Food Coalition, Citrine Health and Within Reach attend the Snohomish County Food Bank Coalition eetings to share additional resources available to food banks and the families we serve. Last year, this collective group served over 425,000 Snohomish County residents. Our mission could not happen without our valued partner agencies.
Food Lifeline stops people from going hungry by applying ingenuity to this largely logistical problem. Our programs find creative ways to feed more families, including redirecting good food that might have otherwise gone to waste; and our policy work defends the community’s safety net and reduces barriers to people feeding themselves. In a world of plenty, there is no excuse for there to be hungry families in Western Washington.
