Hunger is not just the absence of food: it’s the absence of justice. Food security is a foundational building block to creating a more just and equitable society where all families thrive. Northwest Harvest works to achieve food justice by breaking down barriers that prevent people from accessing good food and by addressing the root causes of poverty and hunger -- policies and practices that perpetuate racism and inequity.At Northwest Harvest, we prize respect and dignity for our neighbors. We believe food should be a human right. Join the fight for food justice at www.northwestharvest.org.
