Thank you for your generosity! Your food donations provide variety to supplement the staple items and produce Northwest Harvest distributes to our partner programs. We can accept nonperishable items only.
Please give careful consideration to what is in your donation bag. Foods highest in nutritional density tend to be the least processed foods. Fresh fruits and vegetable are mostly very good in nutritional density, and monetary contributions help us access fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables. Within shelf-stable products, select ones with the lowest saturated fats and refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour).
More than 50% of those we serve are children and the elderly—the populations most affected by a compromised diet. We know that nutrition matters, and we’re committed to providing the most beneficial food possible to our clients. We believe that fighting hunger, and ultimately helping end it, requires a focus in part on what we eat.
