Since 1984, local emergency food providers have worked together to coordinate services in the struggle against hunger.

Seattle Food Committee members represent 27 food programs serving those in need of supplemental food. SFC works with food distributors and other service providers to coordinate and maximize the efficiency of Seattle’s emergency food system.

Here’s how:

  • Combine resources for greater buying power.
  • Inform the public and media on hunger issues and local assistance programs.
  • Share information and experience to run food programs more efficiently.
  • Educate local and state officials to garner support for emergency food programs and their needs.
  • Organize skill-building trainings and workshops
  • Increase emergency preparedness
