Seattle Food Bank Numbers for 2014

For the eighth year in a row, Seattle area food banks saw an increase in their service counts. Food banks are serving 45% more households than they did at the beginning of the recession in 2007 and many of the individuals served are our community’s most vulnerable individuals. 34% of client visits in 2014 were seniors over the age of 55 and 24% were children 18 and younger. Through our collective voice, the Seattle Food Committee aims to provide support to food banks as they serve these individuals and advocate for policies that impact hunger in our communities.
