Join Us! Hunger Action Week Begins March 25!

March 22, 2013

Did you know that 1 in 5 kids in Seattle's King County is at risk for hunger? United Way is working to erase the question mark that accompanies mealtime for children and families in our neighborhoods. But you don't have to live in Seattle to participate!

Hunger Action Week is an annual awareness week for this issue that affects 13% of King County residents and 1 in 6 people nationwide. Join Foodista, along with fellow food bloggers and businesses, and stand up to hunger!

Sign up today for Hunger Action Week, March 25 to 30.
