MFSS Food Drive

Help the March for Science - Seattle and Northwest Harvest stamp out hunger! Twenty percent of children and fourteen percent of all residents in King County experience food insecurity. These numbers include our neighbors, friends, co-workers. Food insecurity affects every aspect of a person’s life.  

The March for Science – Seattle can be a leader, not only in furthering science but in increasing food security throughout King County.

Northwest Harvest can use any nonperishable food or monetary donations. If you prefer to donate food, select shelf-stable food with the lowest saturated fats and refined carbohydrates (sugar, white flour). We buy white rice, beans, oats, pasta and tomato products in bulk, so we encourage you to donate other items. Here are some suggestions (ranked by importance).

Please bring food or cash donations to Cal Anderson Park at Pine and Nagle BEFORE the march. Please be advised that there will be NO parking on Nagle.
