Our local food banks are tasked with handling the growing need for food in our communities while also managing safe distribution practices, operating with a greatly reduced staff, and significant operational changes.
The amount of people coming into food banks in Washington is growing,and so is the overall need of what people need to take back with them.
Washington’s unemployment rate hit 15.4% — more than triple the unemployment rate this time last year— and an estimated 1.6 million Washingtonians are facing food insecurity.
When COVID-19 related job losses began in early March, food banks across Washington state started to see an influx of visitors.
