The La Conner Sunrise Food Bank orders food from our affiliates below. Each provides a different function that contributes to the diversity of healthy and needed foods for our diverse clientele.
Northwest Harvest is Washington’s own statewide hunger relief agency. Our mission is leading the fight for hungry people statewide to have access to nutritious food while respecting their dignity and promoting good health. Our vision is ending hunger in Washington.
Every year, nearly 40% of the food produced in our country ends up in landfills while millions of people go hungry. Food Lifeline has a solution. We rescue millions of pounds of nutritious food from farmers, manufacturers, grocery stores, restaurants, and retailers that would otherwise go to waste. 13,450 volunteers visit our Hunger Solution Center annually to help sort and repack this nourishing food. Food Lifeline then distributes it to more than 300 food banks, shelters, and meal programs throughout Western Washington, providing the equivalent of 116,000 meals every day for hungry children, adults, and seniors.
Community Action of Skagit County
Last year, Community Action helped nearly 30,000 hard-working individuals and families find tools and support to get out of poverty while mobilizing more than 3,000 volunteers. Yet, as the gap widens between housing expenses and local wages, we saw a 21% increase in service needs from 2015 to 2017.
