Since 1967 Northwest Harvest has been helping feed hungry people in Washington and until that need is gone, we'll be here writing about the stories of the people we serve and those who help make our mission possible.

Here you'll read stories from and about a variety of people involved in the organization: including our volunteers, our staff and our clients; food procurement, nutrition, food safety, advocacy, childhood hunger. We hope you enjoy them and engage with them. We would love nothing more than to hear your stories and your comments to ours.
