Join us for Hunger Action Day, February 25 in Olympia

Hunger Action Day is only a week away!
Register now

During each legislative session, the Anti-Hunger & Nutrition Coalition hosts Hunger Action Day in Olympia to advocate for hungry families in Washington. The Seattle Food Committee is represented on the steering committee of the Coalition and helps coordinate Hunger Action Day, so we are encouraging our supporters to join us in Olympia on February 25 to engage our legislators in the fight to end hunger in Washington.

This year’s Hunger Action Day is especially important as the state’s budget crisis will result in the elimination or significant reductions of critical services that help struggling families meet their basic needs, like keeping food on the table. One in seven households in Washington struggled to provide enough food for their family in 2010. Washington now ranks as the thirteenth hungriest state in the nation, and the problem of hunger in our communities will continue to grow unless we speak out.

Register today and join us in Olympia on February 25th—the success of our efforts in Olympia rely on your voices and the voices of those we serve being heard! Help us spread the word! Tell your friends, family and co-workers.
