Food Access Programs Help Older Adults and People Experiencing Homelessness

COVID-19 has left 1.6 million people in Washington state struggling to put food on the table. The need is especially high in parts of Seattle and South King County. Various city departments including Human Services and the Office of Sustainability and Environment have funded food access and nutrition for older adults and people experiencing homelessness. A grocery voucher program is now helping 9,000 Seattle families. Seattle senior centers are making meals for delivery. And philanthropic organizations, businesses, and nonprofits, like FareStart, are also assisting in the community-wide effort to battle hunger.
