Upcoming Local Food Drives in the Westsound

Updated: Apr 4




In 2020 Compass & Clock and it's members organized & hosted 5 Local Food Drives to help restock the shelves of the local food banks. Together in a total of just 15 hours we collected over 3000lbs of food & $1400 in monetary donations for 5 different Food Banks in the Westsound.


Our local food banks continue to be 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.

According to Northwest Harvest:

  • One million Washington residents visited a food bank in the past year.

  • 1 in 10 Washingtonians consistently struggle with hunger.

  • 1 in 6 Washington kids live in a household that faces challenges in putting enough food on the table.

  • 1 in 8 Washingtonians live below the poverty line.

  • 1 in 8 Washingtonians relies on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to purchase food. Half of all people on SNAP are kids.

  • The majority of working-age Washingtonians living in poverty are working or actively looking for work. Many work more than one job.

  • Washington State ranks 10th in the country in overall wealth—and ranks 34th in food insecurity.
