The Hunger Coalition serves as a collaborative forum for all the individuals and groups working to meet the hunger relief demands of Stevens County. It is in our partnerships and capacity building that The Hunger Coalition and it’s members can make the biggest difference.
“Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is a process and working together is success.” -Henry Ford
One example of The Hunger Coalition’s efforts to bring more produce into Stevens County and the power of partnerships is our monthly produce delivery. Each month Northwest Harvest donates a truck full of extra produce to The Hunger Coalition. This produce is then distributed to local food banks, no small task, only possible through the dedication and resources available by Anita Sailor and Rural Resources. To date these organizations and individuals have made it possible to deliver 99,955 pounds of fresh produce to hungry families!
