The Washington Food Coalition (WFC) actively educates and networks with organizations that strive to alleviate hunger throughout Washington. Incorporated in 1992 as a private non-profit, WFC is the result of a merger between the Western Washington Food Coalition and Eastern Washington's Northwest Regional Food Network. With the goal of creating an efficient, reliable network of food programs in mind, volunteer coalition members first started working together to share best practices, struggles, and triumphs across the field. Now, WFC serves as the collective voice of more than 300 hunger relief agencies from across the state, from Walla Walla to Spokane to Moses Lake to Bellingham to Seattle to Vancouver and just about everywhere in between. Members of the WFC range from large, multi-service agencies and distribution warehouses, to meal programs and small volunteer-operated food banks in both urban and rural communities.
