Building the Political Will to End Hunger in Washington

Advocate for Food Justice in Washington

Advocacy is an important tool for holding our elected officials accountable so that everyone in Washington has equitable access to nutritious food. It takes the voices of many to demand food justice. It takes all of us to protect our collective right to nutritious food.

Northwest Harvest believes that ending hunger means eradicating its root cause—poverty. To this end, we advocate for public policies that 1) promote access to nutritious food, 2) help those who struggle to meet their basic needs, and 3) support budgets that fund our basic safety net with sustainable revenue.

What You Can Do

Advocating can be as simple as writing a postcard or forwarding an email, or as involved as sharing your story in support or testifying before a legislative committee.

Share your story: We are currently accepting stories and experiences from people who receive SNAP benefits to help us better illustrate how crucial nutrition assistance is to our communities! You can submit your story using this online form.

Learn about the 2023 Farm Bill: Visit our webpage on the Farm Bill, explaining what it is, why it matters, our priorities, a bill tracker, and ideas for how YOU can advocate for a strong Farm Bill!
