Help KING 5 raise 23 million meals for Home Team Harvest in 2023

You can donate online or towards grocery cards at your local Safeway or Albertsons store through Dec. 31.

SEATTLE — KING 5 needs your help to raise 23 million meals for Home Team Harvest, Washington state’s largest annual food drive. All funds and donations will go to Northwest Harvest, the state’s largest hunger relief agency. The nonprofit distributes food to every county in Washington, working with a statewide network of 400 food banks, meal programs, and schools.

Since the year 2001, Home Team Harvest has raised more than 100 million meals. Last year, our community rallied to raise 21 million meals and we're aiming to help even more of our neighbors in 2023. 

How to donate

Click here to donate online through Northwest Harvest.

Donate $5, $10 or $12 towards grocery cards at your local Safeway or Albertsons store.

UPDATE: In-person donations will also be accepted at two locations on Dec. 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Rainier Safeway: 9262 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle, WA 98118
Everett Safeway: 5802 134th Place SE, Everett, WA 98208

Donations towards grocery cards will provide much-needed funding that will be distributed to Northwest Harvest and its partner programs across Washington. Grocery cards give clients the flexibility to visit their local Safeway or Albertsons store to purchase the items that are most important or most needed by them and their families.

Donations can be made through the end of the year.

Why your donations matter

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, an estimated one in 12 households face food insecurity in Washington state. Households with children; Black, Indigenous and people of color households; and households who identify as transgender, nonbinary or other reach the highest levels of food insecurity.

Every donation provides nutritious food to children, seniors, veterans, and families throughout Washington and ensures Northwest Harvest can work with partners in our community to address systemic root causes of hunger. 

Northwest Harvest recognizes that it takes more than food to end hunger. By addressing the root causes of poverty and getting food where it is most needed, they are working to end food insecurity in our state and create a more equitable food system for all Washingtonians.
