KEXP’s Community Partnership Initiative: The Emergency Feeding Program

This month, KEXP’s Community Partnership Initiative is pleased to spotlight The Emergency Feeding Program, a NW organization who works in collaboration with over 130 organizations to distribute 15 different varieties of nutritionally balanced, culturally appropriate, and diet specific food bags to hungry individuals and families throughout King County.

Here are five things you can do right now to get involved with Emergency Feeding Program:

1. Volunteer with us. EFP would love to host a group from your place of business, school, place of worship, your family or other community with which you are affiliated. Groups join us in our Seattle warehouse to help sort food or pack some of the 2,000 emergency grocery bags we distribute each month. We also need dedicated individuals to serve on our Board of Directors or share their IT, volunteer management, and technical skills.

2. Plan a food drive. It’s easier than you may think to conduct a food drive at work, home, school, or within a faith community. EFP can provide food lists, donation barrels, and donation pick up. You provide the heart and hands that ensure success.

3. Educate others on the continuing problem of hunger in Seattle and King County. Visit our website for publications on hunger in our communities.

4. Organize your community to sponsor a school in need of food bags for children.

5. Be part of a “coalition of caring” by developing relationships within your community to address local hunger.

On Saturday, January 7th, the Audioasis Community Partnership Benefit show at The Sunset in Ballard will feature Monogamy Party, Grayskul and Constant Lovers. Each band has generously donated their performances to benefit The Emergency Feeding Program. Get more information and buy tickets here.
