United Way of King County's vision is to build a community where people have homes, students graduate, and families are financially stable. We are committed to ensuring that children, particularly children of color, have access to healthy food in the places where they live, learn, and play. Everyone deserves access to nutritious and culturally relevant food, but during the pandemic, hunger in our community tripled. Low-income families and families of color were disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and are experiencing hunger at unprecedented rates. UWKC is working to support an equitable recovery from the COVID19 pandemic in our community, by developing and scaling high-impact strategies to reduce food insecurity. As a HungerCorps member, you'll connect families with critical food resources, including school meals, food banks, and public benefits programs like Basic Food (SNAP) – with a particular focus on supporting communities that have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. The UWKC's Food Security team is a dynamic cohort of direct service AmeriCorps members working in partnership with UWKC staff, AmeriCorps VISTAs, school districts, and community-based organizations to connect families with the food they need. As a HungerCorps member, you will serve with one or more of UWKC’s partners: • Tacoma Public Schools • The YMCA of Greater Seattle • UWKC – Child Nutrition Team or Door Dash Home Delivery Program • Food banks in Seattle and South King County As a member of this cohort, you will be supported with a robust orientation, ongoing professional development, training, check-ins, and the tools and resources you need to succeed. Members will end their year of service with an understanding of food security work and knowledge of anti-hunger strategies, federal meal programs, and increasing food access across the community. **UWKC AmeriCorps members must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the first day of service.**
