Annual Focus Groups
Since 2007, we’ve conducted focus groups with hundreds of food bank clients in different communities across Washington and shared their stories with our coalitions, legislators and others who can help fight hunger through policy work. We seek to amplify the voices of those we serve through our annual focus group reports.
Clients join our facilitators for conversation about their experiences of hunger and securing enough food to feed themselves and their families. In each community, the value of people talking together about their common struggles is evident. Participants are able to learn from each other’s stories and share information about community resources.
We learn a great deal from them; we hope you will also learn from the first-hand experiences of these neighbors and constituents when the next report is released in January 2013. We will share the results with our coalitions, legislators and others who can help fight hunger through policy work.
