What We’re Advocating For

Northwest Harvest advocates for state and federal policies to increase access to food, housing, health care, and economic stability.

2023 Legislative Agenda

We advocate for public policies that support our fight to eliminate hunger

Advocacy is an essential ingredient for ensuring that everyone in Washington has equitable access to nutritious food. Guided by the experience and expertise of people living with hunger, we identify policy changes that will help meet their basic needs for nutrition, health, and housing. We then work with state and federal lawmakers to make these changes in law, regulation, and budgets. It takes the voices of many to convince lawmakers to prioritize food justice. We need you to help protect our collective right to nutritious food.

Our Public Policy Positions

Northwest Harvest staff and Board of Directors have adopted three public policy positions to guide our decisions and actions in pursuing our mission through advocacy.
