WSSDA Gives Back!
Did you know that Washington State is the 15th hungriest state in the nation and in the top 6 where hunger is growing the fastest? Did you also know that 1 in 4 kids in Washington state live in a household that struggles to put food on the table? WSSDA is partnering with Northwest Harvest this year to help reach those most vulnerable in our communities by holding a canned food drive. Be sure to bring non-perishable food items to the WSSDA Annual Conference, where you will find collection bins near the registration area. Suggestions of food items that are always needed: oatmeal, brown rice, canned tomatoes, canned vegetables and fruit, canned fish or meat, shelf-stable milk, stews/chilis, baby formula, jars of baby food and diapers. We will also be collecting cash and checks (payable to Northwest Harvest). Questions? Contact Shannon Epps at 206.349.5913.
