Community Spotlight: Port Angeles Food Bank
Nurturing Community with Port Angeles Food Bank
A meal can be easy to take for granted. But in Clallam County, over 10,700 residents are food insecure, including one in four children. That data was from a Feeding America 2019 study and the need is even greater today. Food insecurity is defined as the lack of consistent access to enough food for every person in a household.
The Port Angeles Food Bank aims to address this need through their vision of cultivating a hunger-free community through service, education, and partnerships. Not only do they serve Port Angeles, but they package and distribute food to other food banks across the peninsula.
