Your Generosity Can Change Lives Throughout Washington

Your food donations supplement the staple items and produce Northwest Harvest distributes to our partner programs.

Truckloads from manufacturing and retail partners, fresh produce from local farms, and nonperishable items collected at food drives all help our statewide network of partners provide resources to those in need.
