At Lettuce Link, we combat hunger and injustice by building community, supporting gardeners, and donating to the emergency food system. Donations are necessary – but so is lasting, systemic change.
Other safety net programs that are in danger of loosing funding provide cash assistance, medical assistance, housing vouchers, prescription drugs, medical interpretation and other essential services to people living in poverty. While not all government programs on the chopping block are directly food-related, they have a huge impact on people’s ability to provide for their families.
Come to a lobby day in Olympia! We’ll be there – will you? If you’ve never been to meet your legislator, this is a great way to get your feet wet!
