Working Together To End Hunger Since 1990
The Anti Hunger & Nutrition Coalition brings the voices of hungry Washington families to the ears of our policy makers to insure that public policy leads our response to hunger in our state. Over the years, the Coalition has successfully advocated for strategic policy and state appropriations to maximize federal nutrition programs, reinforce our community-based emergency food assistance system and link local farmers with the needs of the hungry.
