'21-'22 Food Drive Coordinator VISTA
For over 45 years, Nourish Pierce County has been dedicated to providing nutritious food to those in need with compassion, dignity and respect. A the largest network of food banks in the county, we operate 7 brick and mortar food banks and have 2 award winning semi-trailers/mobile food banks that serve an additional 19 sites in each corner of the county from Graham to Key Peninsula and from Edgewood to Lakewood.. In 2020, 8% of the population of Pierce County visited a Nourish Food Bank at least one time. To cover this vast geographical area and meet the needs of customers no matter where they live or work, hours of operations and days of operation vary. Clients are free to shop at any location once a week. No one in need is ever turned away. Nourish Pierce County and its programs provide support to the 1 in 7 Washingtonians living in food insecure environments; meaning they do not know where their next meal will come from. Food insecurity can affect anyone. Most of our customers are the working poor, homeless & unemployed. Our fastest growing population is seniors. 32% of the customers we serve are children under the age of 18. While our goal is to provide each individual or family with enough food to make 3 meals a day for 3 days, Nourish is so much more. Hugs are as plentiful as the food. Stories are shared, lives touched. Because we Nourish our clients and each other- with compassion, dignity and respect. At Nourish we believe that no one should go hungry. That is why we exist. Children and families. The elderly, the working poor and homeless. We provide more healthy, nutritious food to clients than any other organization in Pierce County. We could not do this work if it were not for more than 1,000 committed volunteers who help us provide these services.
