About Feed Washington Feed Washington was founded in 2003 by Eirik Olsen with the goal of eradicating childhood hunger in Washington State. Eirik was inspired to start Feed Washington after volunteering as a board member for the North Seattle Boys and Girls Club and hearing story after story of Club members who were going hungry on a daily basis. In Eirik’s words: “Before we can expect children to do well at school, at home, with friends, or at the Boys and Girls Club, they must be properly fed. Since children don’t have the ability to meet their basic needs we, the non-hungry adults of Washington State, must help them until they can. I hope you will join me and Feed Washington’s incredible donors in doing whatever is necessary to put an end to childhood hunger.

TESTIMONIALS “Without the support of Feed Washington, thousands of children in our State would go hungry each year. Thank you for filling a huge void at a critical time. The impact you are making is nothing short of incredible!” Paige Collins, Manager Providence Regina House “It’s inspiring for me to be part of a grassroots movement where I’m only asked to pitch in a small amount on a monthly basis, but get to be part of a group that is, collectively, making a massive impact on childhood hunger.”

How many hungry kids are there in Washington State? According to statistics compiled by the Children’s Alliance, over 152,200 households in Washington State meet the definition of “hungry”. Children’s Alliance estimates that over 400,000 children in Washington live in households that struggle to put food on the table on a regular basis.

Why does Feed Washington prefer a recurring donation? The recurring donation model provides inspiration to our current and potential donors by clearly showing our growth, momentum and the cumulative impact our collective donations are making. While “one time” donations are gladly accepted, we hope our donors will agree with the power of our business model and choose to make a monthly, recurring donation.
