Northwest Harvest has updated its Food Drive Program! We have restructured the program to center the community partners who ultimately receive the food that is donated. We are asking donors to host food drives to bring in items most needed by the community partners Northwest Harvest serves. We are encouraging food drive participants to join us in the food justice movement, consider the root causes of hunger, and give with intention. It is a fundamental value and mission of Northwest Harvest to build equitable access to nutritious food with dignity and respect for all in Washington.

REGISTER YOUR FOOD DRIVE
We have limited transportation capacity, primarily reserved for deliveries to food banks and meal programs we partner with. Northwest Harvest is unable to deliver supplies for food drives and can only offer to pick up collections on a very limited basis. We do consider your delivery as a part of your donation.
If you can’t make it to a Northwest Harvest location, we are happy to connect food drive hosts with a local partner program in your area to donate your food directly. This way you can support your local community and won’t have to travel as far. Non-perishable food items may also be donated at a drop sites, which are located throughout western Washington.
Northwest Harvest welcomes donations of non-perishable food items (for donations of fresh items, please contact our Procurement Team). Please select shelf-stable foods that are low in sodium, sugar, and saturated fats.
Here are suggestions for high demand items by region and county:
