A Dubious Honor for WA State – Child Food Insecurity

Washington is in the upper half of the list of states – which, in this case, is a dubious achievement. We rank 18th in the nation for highest child hunger rates for children under 5. Even more alarmingly, we rank 12th for children under 18. Our rates are approaching 20%! Please consider supporting your local food bank to help alleviate these stunning statistics. We provide food to families, helping children and other members of our community receive the nutrition that we all deserve. FamilyWorks begins our 2009 Annual Campaign tomorrow! Check back for more information, or call us at 206/694.6727. If you can’t help financially, please consider donating a smaller item, like bus tickets to help our customers reach the food bank without having to pay. Check our Wish List (click on the tab just under our purple logo) for up-to-the-minute requests. Thanks as always for your help!
