Food Security Collaborator VISTA
 
 
 
**UWKC AmeriCorps members must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the first day of service.**United Way of King County is committed to building a racially just community where people have homes, students graduate, and families are financially stable. Since 2010, United Way has had a pivotal and strategic role in alleviating food insecurity in Washington State. At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, demand for home delivery of food increased significantly across Washington State, particularly among households with young children or seniors. While our community was fortunate to have a strong network of food banks and other partners who stepped up to provide emergency food, there was not enough capacity within our local emergency food system to meet the full needs of clients. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted deeper systems gaps with the emergency food system, including communities that have been historically and continuously underserved by mainstream food providers. The Food Justice Collaborative is a BIPOC-centered food alliance who are directly impacted by systemic inequities in the King County food ecosystem and serve BIPOC clients experiencing disproportionate levels of poverty and food insecurity. The purpose of the Food Justice Collaborative is to provide a collaborative space where food banks, farms, distributors, and community-based organizations can share programmatic resources across divides to reduce food insecurity in King County, deepen relationships, and develop a shared and unified voice to impact systemic change.
